Innovation in HVAC technology has been on the rise in recent years. With a mission to create sustainable systems that provide energy-efficiency solutions, the HVAC market growth has been astronomical. Not only are the new AC units more energy efficient than ever before, but they are also more cost effective. These new air conditioning systems provide a win-win situation – decreased environmental impact and decreased cost.

Whether you live in the Tampa, Clearwater, or St. Petersburg area, Mason Air Conditioning is the local expert to choose for your new AC installation or replacement unit.

There are a few key things to look for when you are buying a new energy-efficient air conditioner that will help keep your energy bill—and the temperature in your home—low.

Features to Look for When Choosing an Energy-Efficient Air Conditioner:

  • Size of Air Conditioner: Proper sizing is a crucial factor in determining an air conditioner’s efficiency. Different types of air conditioners are better suited for different types of homes. By selecting the right size unit, it will ensure your unit is not working harder than it should to keep your space cool or warm. This has a direct effect on the bottom line, and if the right size is not selected, could result in increased energy bills. A professional will be able to tell you the best size based on your home’s square footage, ceiling height, sun exposure, climate, and a number of other factors.
  • Energy Saving Features: Many new air conditioners have an energy-saving setting. So, if you want to save energy and money, make sure this option is turned on. By doing so, the AC unit will turn off not only the compressor, but also the fan once your space is at the optimum temperature, resulting in conserved energy. There are also units with a wifi-enabled setting that allows you to adjust your air conditioner with your smartphone. This lets you adjust the temperature when you are away from the home or back inside, opening up even more energy and cost saving benefits.
  • Efficiency Ratings: Research different AC unit’s EER and SEER ratings. EER stands for “energy efficiency rating” and SEER stands for “seasonal energy efficiency rating.” The SEER rating specifically designates how much electricity is required to remove a given amount of heat from an indoor space, which is important if you live in warm parts of the country, like Florida. Generally speaking, a higher EER and SEER rating means greater efficiency. A quick way to find energy efficient air conditioners with high EER and SEER ratings is to look for ENERGY STAR certified products. ENERGY STAR is a government-backed program designed to help consumers save money and the environment by purchasing quality energy-efficient products.
