High-Efficiency Air Conditioners To Keep You Cool
Top 3 Things To Consider When Buying Air Conditioners:
An efficient system will not only lower your energy costs, but also lower your impact on the environment. System cooling efficiency is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The higher the SEER, the greater the system’s energy efficiency – much like miles per gallon in a car. However, in our relatively mild climate here in the Spokane / Coeur d’Alene area, it usually doesn’t pay off to invest in higher SEER systems, as the savings won’t pay off.
Buy the right sized unit
Bigger is not necessarily better. Studies show that up to half of home air conditioners don’t work the way they should because they are over-sized. Air conditioners that are over-sized turn off and on more frequently than necessary, using more energy and leading to higher utility bills. They’re noisier and aren’t as effective dehumidifying your home as a smaller system would be. Over-sized air conditioners don’t mean more comfort for you – they mean higher upfront costs, higher electricity bills, and a home that’s uncomfortable to live in.
A heating & air conditioning system is not a commodity like a washer & dryer or microwave oven. Its efficiency, reliability, performance and safety are directly related to the quality of installation, proper sizing, and air distribution. It’s important when investing thousands of your hard earned dollars on a new system that it performs as expected, and shortcuts aren’t taken in the design or installation process that will bite you later. Beware of the low bidder – a few bucks saved upfront isn’t worth a system that under performs over time.
