Central air conditioning is the most important feature your home can have, and the most popular way to combat California’s hottest days. Oh, and let’s not forget the dog days of August when the California sun stings the most. Our Energy Star rated systems can relieve the sting of the sun while not stinging your pocket book.
While considering central air conditioning for your home here a few things to consider and understand.
- Energy Star rated products will provide many years of comfort while using up to 20% less energy than standard systems.
- Air conditioning sizing and efficiency is a critical part of your decision. Under sized systems can leave you uncomfortable while raising cost of operation.
- Lower Utility Bill – Clean and maintained heating and cooling system will have a lower operating cost and extend life. Clogged and dirty systems increase utility usage and drive up bill while causing unnecessary ware on unit.
- Comfort – Well this says it all. Nothing worse than paying a high bill for an old unmaintained system and getting no comfort satisfaction.
Air conditioning systems have a rating to help you determine what system to choose known as a S.E.E.R rating. This stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the S.E.E.R. rating the more efficient the product. Today’s current Government standards mandates that air conditioners be at least 14 S.E.E.R. Ten years ago this standard was only a 10 S.E.E.R. Older air conditioning systems use an ozone depleting refrigerant known as R22 Freon. This has now been replaced with an environmentally friendly refrigerant known as Puron R410a. R22 refrigerant systems are on a steady decline and will be obsolete soon.
