Philadelphia Air Conditioning Repair
Understanding the Efficiency Rating on HVAC Systems
Worried about your climbing electricity bills? Your home or office cooling system may be the culprit behind your energy bills spiking with big fluctuations in the weather. When trying to decide if buying a new air conditioner is right for you, a lot of people are ONLY looking at the price tag of a new install. You should, of course, consider that, but also try to find out how much money a new system is going to save you every month, plan for the future.
We all know a salesman’s job is to sell a product, so it’s understandable to be skeptical when someone tells you spending MORE money now is going to save you money down the road. New tech IS almost always more efficient, but it comes down to what is going to be the most efficient and work the best for you.
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, and of course you want this number as high as possible on your own unit.
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 a serious amount of money, in the long run, have at least a 12.0 SEER.
Remember that any piece of equipment, regardless of what it is, is a lot more likely to fall apart if it’s not cared for and maintained. 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 that benefits our customers, both homeowners and business owners alike.
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.
