When you find out that you need to replace your older air conditioner, you might not be entirely prepared for the expense that comes along with it. Homeowners who don’t want to pay the price of a high-efficiency AC system sometimes compromise by choosing a unit that is the lowest price. But this means that you will end up paying more each month, and you may need to make repairs more frequently for a system with a relatively short lifespan.
Your contractor may provide financing for a high-efficiency air conditioning system so that you don’t have to pay the full cost upfront. We recommend that all of our customers install high-efficiency air conditioning equipment whenever possible, but we understand that not all homeowners understand the benefits these systems have to offer. We’ve put together a list of a few reasons to install one.
- Reduce your bills: The number one reason to install a high-efficiency air conditioner is to save money on your monthly bills. Over half the cost of your energy bill may actually be due to the air conditioning equipment, but a high-efficiency system could save you hundreds.
- Improve performance: Just because high-efficiency systems use less energy, it doesn’t mean that they suffer in performance whatsoever. In fact, your new high-efficiency AC may come with additional benefits like a variable-speed blower for increased comfort and reduced spending.
- Reduce environmental effects: A high-efficiency air conditioner has a smaller carbon footprint and cuts out the use of refrigerants that have been found to contribute to ozone depletion.
- Increase the life of your AC: A high-efficiency system should last longer than one with a low-efficiency rating because it will start and stop less frequently, reducing wear and tear on the system. Look for a unit with a SEER rating of 16 or higher for maximum efficiency.
