With the cost of cooling your home getting more expensive. It is becoming challenging and more important to find cost effective, and energy efficient air conditioning solutions for your home.
A room air conditioner’s efficiency is measured by the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). The EER is the ratio of the cooling capacity, so the higher the EER rating, the more efficient the air conditioner.
Below you will find the 7 benefits of having energy efficient air conditioning.
1. Lower Your Energy Bills
The average American household spends approximately $2,000 dollars per year on energy costs, and half of that goes to HVAC systems. Inefficient air conditioning units come with their own set of costs, including repairs, difficult to find parts and unreliable cooling.
Units certified for efficiency provide budget-friendly, air conditioning relief. A/C units with an Energy Star certification are guaranteed to lower your monthly cooling bill and deliver clean HVAC service in your home.
2. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Efficient air conditioning is not only good for the money you will save, but it’s also great for the environment. Old A/C units produce greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. By making the switch to energy-efficient solutions, you can do your part to help the planet and your environment.
3. Complete Climate Control
When you invest in a energy efficient air conditioning unit, you will have more control over the temperature in your home. A/C units can be equipped with programmable thermostats, which are instrumental in controlling cooling costs and improving comfort. Many programmable thermostats come with smartphone apps so you can turn on the A/C before you get home or turn it off after you leave.
4. Your Unit is Just the Beginning
Having an energy efficient air conditioning unit is just the start of long term energy solutions in your home. You can further reduce cooling costs by effectively sealing vents, insulating your HVAC system.
5. Rebates May Be Available
The U.S. Government is encouraging all American households to invest in energy efficient solutions by offering extra savings. Depending on the unit size and installation, tax rebates may also be available.
6. Less Noise
Energy efficient cooling systems are designed to make less noise and fit seamlessly within your home’s layout.
7. Cooling is Never Wasted on Unoccupied Rooms
Energy efficient A/C systems can be optimized for maximum control, so you do not have to waste energy on cooling rooms that you will not be using. By only using your air conditioner in rooms where temperature control is needed, you can maximize your savings.
Now that you have read this email, you have a better understanding of Efficiency Ratio (EER). The first step to upgrading your existing HVAC system is to discuss your cooling needs with a Airworx’s technician to get a quote and learn more about energy efficient air conditioning options for home.
