Installing a high-efficiency air conditioner, coupled with other actions, could slash your electric bill in half. Many Surf City, NC, homeowners are unaware that high-efficiency air conditioners exist. Here’s why you should consider replacing your old air conditioner with a new high-efficiency AC system:
What Can a New AC System Do for You?
A new high-efficiency air conditioner in your home can help you in many ways. Some these include the following:
- Save energy and reduce cooling bills.
- Upgrade to a more environmentally friendly refrigerant.
- Reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
Is Your New Air Conditioner Truly Efficient?
You should look for an EnergyGuide or Energy Star label. Air conditioners affixed with one of these labels are approximately 15% more efficient than standard models.
Air conditioners have come a long way in recent years, especially when it comes to efficiency. You can readily determine an AC system’s efficiency by its SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating. The higher the SEER number, the better. But you must hire a professional to size your new air conditioner correctly to get the most bang for your buck. Whether you want to install a central air conditioner or connect multiple ductless units, we can help you maximize cooling efficiency without overpaying for a system.
What Else Can You Do to Increase Efficiency?
For even better efficiency, you can have an HVAC contractor check and maintain your system. You can expect an HVAC contractor to do the following:
- Maintain or replace your air ducts.
- Balance your system.
- Upgrade your air duct insulation.
Air conditioners have truly come a long way in regards to energy and cost savings. When you’re ready to have a new efficiency air conditioner installed, contact Gideon Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule your appointment and learn more about our services.
