In this age of belt tightening, reducing energy use is a great way to leave more room in the budget. If you've done any HVAC system research recently, you may have seen the term SEER rating. SEER is an acronym for Season Energy Efficiency Ratio, a measurement of the relative amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. The minimum SEER allowed today is 13; you may see older systems still on the market with a 10 SEER, the standard that went into effect in 2006. Savings minded homeowners are always looking for ways to lower their electric bill. Knowing your system's SEER is a great way to do so.
Replacing an older system will make a significant impact on your annual heating and cooling bill. According to the U. S. Department of Energy, today’s best systems use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same output as systems made in the 1970s. Is it time to upgrade your HVAC unit?
