SEER vs. Savings

There are many important benefits to replacing your old air conditioner with a newer, high SEER (ie. high efficiency) unit.

  1. Lower utility bills – High-efficiency units use less energy and therefore cost less to operate.
  2. Rebates – Many areas offer incentives from the government or manufacturer to purchase equipment that is more efficient.
  3. Humidity Control – These units work at the appropriate level to cool the air and remove humidity simultaneously. Older, less efficient models may cool the area quickly but not remove moisture that can cause mold.
  4. Environmental Impact – Since high SEER systems use less energy, they also emit less CO2. Also, since they use less electricity, that means less fossil fuels are burned.
