Why Choose a High-Efficiency Air Conditioner

When you are looking for an air cooling solution for your home, a superior option is to choose a high-efficiency air conditioner instead of a standard AC unit that costs less. Besides being able to cool your home more efficiently provides a wide range of long-term benefits that will help you save money, and live more comfortably, over the long-haul. Here are some of these benefits of a high-efficiency HVAC system:

Why Choose a High-Efficiency Air Conditioner

  • It’s friendlier to the environment. High-efficiency heating and cooling solutions require less energy to do the same amount of work as a standard cooling system. Using less energy puts less strain on your HVAC unit, your pocketbook, and the environment. For maximum return on investment, make sure the unit you choose has the EPA “Energy Star” label.
  • It’s more budget-friendly. Less power consumption always means more savings for you when the utility bills come rolling around.
  • It has better functionality and performance. High-efficiency air conditioners not only perform much better than their standard-efficiency counterparts, but they usually have additional features that make them an overall better choice for cooling your home. Examples of these features include variable speed air handlers and two-stage compressors, both of which will create consistent cooling in your home.
  • It has a longer operating lifetime. As high-efficiency air conditioners are designed to maximize cooling efficiency without having to work harder for it, they will obviously experience less wear and tear than their lesser counterparts. This means you can expect your air conditioner to last for much longer than a standard unit when you provide proper maintenance.

SEER rating

To determine whether the air conditioner you’re looking to buy is a high-efficiency model, all you need to do is look at the SEER rating or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Air conditioners that have a SEER rating of at least 14.5 qualify as a high-efficiency air conditioner. Anything lower counts as a standard air conditioner that may need to be replaced much faster.
