Saving Money Now or Later
The federal government has mandated that as of January 1, 2006 all air conditioning equipment manufactured must have a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) of 13 or higher. However, existing inventory of 10, 11 or 12 SEER units can be sold until they are gone. By buying the leftovers units you will save some money on the initial purchase. But in the long run you will spend more on operating costs. The higher the SEER number, the higher the efficiency and the lower the operating costs. The new higher efficiency equipment will save on the electric bill and provide many other benefits. With a 2-speed condensing unit and a variable speed air handler you will achieve quieter operation, better humidity control, more even temperatures, and a comfortable home.
