Spring is here, and that means that it won’t be long until the hot, humid summer season will be upon us. What better time to prepare yourself to beat the summer heat than right now? Spring affords customers the perfect opportunity to upgrade their HVAC system with a brand new AC unit. It’s time to call on the professionals at Qual-Tech Air Conditioning and Heating to help you select and install a new, energy-efficient unit.
It’s not just about getting a new air conditioning unit though. It’s about getting the right unit. Technologically speaking, AC units have come a long way in the past few years. They run colder and more powerful with a lower overall energy consumption.
The key is finding and installing a unit with a high SEER rating. SEER stands for the “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.” Generally speaking, the higher the SEER rating, the more savings you can expect over time. SEER is a measure of the AC unit’s cost of operation which is derived by dividing the AC unit’s cooling output by the electricity that it uses.
The higher an AC unit’s SEER rating is, the more efficiently it will cool your home or office space Older AC units usually operated somewhere in the 10 SEER level range. Modern day, top-of-the-line units can have a rating of 20 or more.
Over time, an AC unit with a high SEER rating can save you significantly on your property’s cooling costs. Moving from an older AC unit with a rating of 10 SEER to an improved efficiency unit of 20 SEER can save you up to an estimated $3,000 over 5 years. Try out our SEER calculator to determine your potential savings.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and it measures the annual energy consumption and efficiency of the unit’s cooling ability in typical day-to-day use. The higher the SEER value, the less energy the unit will use. Many older residential air conditioning systems in the U.S. may have a SEER number of 10 or less. The good news for homeowners in the market for a new air conditioner or heat pump is that current high-efficiency residential equipment can boast SEER values of 25 or higher. Higher SEER units typically cost less to run, which can save homeowners money on energy costs.
