Air conditioning units can play a significant role in keeping your home cool and comfortable during the hot summer months. However, not all air conditioners are created equal, and it’s important to choose a model with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) to save money on electricity and reduce your environmental impact.
SEER is a measure of an air conditioner’s efficiency, and higher SEER numbers indicate that the unit uses less energy to produce the same level of cooling. For example, a 13 SEER air conditioner uses 23% less energy than a 10 SEER unit, which was the EPA standard up until January 2006. While 13 SEER is the current minimum efficiency standard, we offer a line of air conditioners that start at 13 SEER and go all the way up to 21 SEER. Depending on your average usage, a higher SEER air conditioner can significantly reduce your electric bill.
In addition to high SEER ratings, we at Maxie Heating & Cooling offer many air conditioners with advanced features, such as 2-stage compressors and variable speed fan operation. These features not only improve the comfort level of your home, but can provide additional energy savings as well. For example, a 2-stage compressor can adjust its output based on the cooling needs of your home, using less energy when full cooling power is not required. Choosing a high-efficiency air conditioner with advanced features can help you save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
