How To Weigh The Benefits Of A High-Efficiency Air Conditioner

high-efficiency air conditioner englewood floridaIf alternative energy sources aren’t within the reality of your budget, a high-efficiency air conditioner can and should be your next viable solution to high energy costs and an uncomfortable home. A high-efficiency air conditioner is an efficient, low-cost alternative to higher-priced renewable energy sources and will far outperform a standard, less efficient air conditioner.

A high-efficiency air conditioner is worth the extra cost when compared to a lower-rated A/C. These benefits reveal why, because high-efficiency air conditioners:

  • Last longer – With high-tech components designed to work at a variety of speeds, these internal parts run more often at a lower speed, using their total service life less quickly than a standard A/C, which would operate at full speed 100 percent of the time.
  • Use smarter components – Air conditioners with an electronically commutated motor (or ECC), for instance, are basically self-lubricating, which ensures that the motor operates with no friction losses and operates using much less electricity overall than standard motors.
  • Reach higher efficiency standards – With the minimum standard for efficiency set by the federal government at seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) 13, high-efficiency units far exceed this standard, beginning at SEER 16, with some units reaching SEER 23.
  • Save you energy – With a higher SEER rating, you can expect higher monthly savings from a SEER 23 unit for instance, which could cut energy costs by almost 50 percent when compared to a standard SEER 13 unit.
  • Pay you back for your investment quickly – Take those higher monthly energy savings and put the money toward the extra investment in a high-efficiency unit, and you’ll pay off the system in just a few years.
  • Offer more comfort – While it can be hard to put a value on comfort, higher-efficiency systems can create a higher comfort level than standard systems, due to their advanced features and components.
