Which Air Conditioners Will Provide Increased Energy Efficiency to Your Home or Business?
What are the real product upgrade benefits when it comes to energy efficient air conditioners?
If you’re shopping for air conditioners for your home or business, what you really want to know are the product upgrade benefits. Why? Because it needs to make sense to invest in a new system, and energy efficiency is one of the biggest factors when talking about an HVAC upgrade. There are benefits you might not know of, and it’s important to consider the right equipment. Here are the factors to keep in mind:
Pay Attention to Size
When you’re spending money on a new or upgraded air conditioner it’s important to pay attention to sizing. It’s easy to assume that bigger is better, but that’s not the case. When it comes to energy efficiency and effective cooling, the size really does matter but possibly not in the way you expect.
If the AC unit is too large it will have a hard time removing enough humidity from the air, leaving your house or business feeling too warm and muggy. The AC will have to work harder than it should to make the same space feel cool. If the unit is too small, it can’t keep up with demand. It will work overtime trying to get the space to the desired temperature.
Both of these size issues will prevent your new air conditioner from providing the energy efficiency you hope to get with a new unit.
Pay Attention to Energy Ratings
The more energy efficient a unit is, the higher its efficiency rating. These ratings really do matter. Although it may increase the initial cost of the unit, it will save you money over the lifetime of the air conditioner in reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills. Choosing a system with a high-energy efficiency rating might seem like a big investment now, but it will pay you back in savings on your utility bills over time.
If you’re looking for the right air conditioner for your home or business, energy efficiency is the key. Count on our professional team at McCall’s to show you the product upgrade benefits of energy efficiency.
