Benefits of High-efficiency Air Conditioning:
Whether a homeowner is installing new equipment for the first time or upgrading older existing equipment, today’s high-efficiency options offer more benefits than just those associated with comfort.
In many instances, people can spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars trying to repair old equipment. While not always obvious at the time, this money, in addition to the money needlessly spent on excess energy used by an inefficient system, can go a long way towards the purchase of a brand new unit.
As is the case with anything mechanical, the older equipment gets, the less efficient it becomes. This decline in efficiency over time can add up to significant and unnecessary energy costs. This is the single largest reason that older equipment is replaced with a newer, more efficient system. Over time, this new equipment brings with it some serious savings in the form of reduced energy consumption, as much as 30% in some instances.
Let’s be honest, when cooling equipment stops working it is not only uncomfortable but also inconvenient. The older a system gets, the chances of having to place service calls at all hours of the day or night goes up. In addition to saving money and reducing energy consumption, new equipment offers peace of mind that your home’s level of comfort won’t be interrupted.
While important, comfort and savings aren’t the only benefits that stem from reduced energy consumption. The decline in energy usage a new, high-efficiency systems brings also reduces the impact that our home has on the environment. Savings, comfort and a better environment, what could be better?
