Understanding the Efficiency Rating on HVAC Systems
Worried about your climbing electricity bills? You’re home or office cooling system may be the one to blame for how high your bills get during the hot summer months. When coming to a decision about whether buying a new air conditioner is right for you, many people often look at the cost of purchasing and installing the new machine and it’s often tempting to keep repairing your current unit and living on borrowed time.
When speaking to a Philadelphia AC technician, they recommend an expensive piece of technology that they promise will help cut down on your bills and make your system more efficient, but how can you tell how much more efficient your new unit will be compared to your old one?
Relying on a salesman’s word is simply not enough. Instead look for the SEER rating on your old unit and on the new one the technician is offering to install. The SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, it measures how efficiently a unit uses electricity. The higher the SEER number the greater the efficiency.
In 1992, the government decided that the minimum SEER for newly installed machines in homes would be 10.0, although at the time most machines rated at 6.0. High efficiency machines that can save you money in the long run have at least a 12.0 SEER.
Remember that any piece of equipment without proper care and maintenance can fall in to disrepair. Just because you have a great unit does not mean you can set it and forget it. Remember to have it checked out at least twice a year [see Annual Maintenance Agreement]. As a reputable Philadelphia Air Conditioning Repair company we offer a managed agreement which benefits our customers both homeowners and business owners.
You should notice an immediate difference in the quality of your cooling after replacing your air conditioner with a new, more efficient unit, and your monthly energy bill will reflect the change.
