Out With The Old and In With the New – A/C Unit

12 Mar

old and new a/c unitsMarch 20, 2015 is the first day of spring and summer is close behind.

For seasonal residents in Southwest Florida, this means that season 2015 is coming to an end and you will be returning to your summer homes very soon.

With summer comes high humidity and it is important that your a/c unit is running efficiently so that it will help keep your home at a cool temperature throughout the summer months while you are away.

New compressor technology and updated fan blade shapes make new a/c units less noisy and more energy efficient.

According to This Old House, twenty years ago, a typical system might use 6,000 watts of electricity per hour to cool an average-size house. Today, that same house can be cooled with as little as 1,710 watts per hour, an astounding 250-percent increase in operating efficiency.

When choosing a new air conditioning unit, purchase one with a SEER (seasonal energy-efficiency ratio) of at least 14. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient your new a/c unit will run which will result in lower electric bills.
