Highly Efficient Air Conditioners

The latest high-efficiency systems can almost cut the running costs of older systems in half. Picture those saving years after year! Energy efficiency is not just the way of the future, it’s an all around benefit from your wallet to the green, grassy outdoors. The HVAC industry has taken note of the latest wave of energy efficient products and have adapted manufacturing to reflect it.

The efficiency of air conditioning systems is expressed as its SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). Essentially, the higher the rating the more efficient the system. For example, a 19.5 SEER would have almost half the running costs of a typical 15 year old, 10.5 SEER system. While air conditioning systems with high SEER ratings may be a little pricier, the benefits and lifetime costs are well worth the value.

Home Zoning

Another way to save is to consider home zoning, which can enable everyone in the home to select their own preferred comfort level. Best of all, if there’s a part of the home which is used less, or at particular parts of the day, that zone can be run on a lower setting to save energy. For example, you could run cooling lightly in only the bedrooms at night, but turn off the unused living areas. Additionally, you can decide to leave the cooling in bedrooms to start later in the day.

With home zoning, your comfort is set to your standards. No more fighting over the thermostat! Enjoy cool, comfortable temperatures just the way you like it, every time.
