New heating and cooling systems come equipped with an energy label that outlines the SEER rating for the unit. This number outlines how well the system is able to use the energy that it consumes. In today’s society, the air conditioning units are a lot more energy-efficient than what they once were years prior. The best heating and cooling systems tend to use between 30 to 50 percent less in energy than what they did back in the 1970s.
New air conditioning units can help you save anywhere from 20 to 40 percent on your energy costs. Replacing a 10-year-old unit will help you notice a dramatic decrease in the amount of money you spend every month.
SEER ratings will determine how many BTU per hour are being removed for every watt of power that the unit is drawing. Understanding how efficiently your unit is working will help you to get an idea of where you can improve and save even more money around your home. By sharing 20 to 40 percent from your energy bill, you could be saving hundreds, if not thousands, every month in heating and cooling costs.
The SEER rating calculations were set to match that of the actual conditions under which the unit operated. Ducted central HVAC systems producing 65,000 BTU is SEER rated. SEER calculations consider all of the electricity that us used from the outdoor fan motor, indoor blower motor and the compressor when paired with a specific coil indoors.
Numbers range from eight on up to 23. The higher the number, the more efficient the unit is going to be. Efficient units mean lower energy bills for you. Everyone loves to save money, so buying one of these units with a higher SEER rating will serve a multitude of purposes for your home. Not only will you save money, but you will also improve the operating capacity in your current unit. Performance and operating capacity are right around the corner with one of the new energy-efficient units on the market today.
