Save Money and Energy by Selecting HVAC Equipment with a High SEER Rating
Posted on: March 26, 2014
If you are preparing to install a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system at your home or if you are getting ready to upgrade the equipment, you should know that you stand to save money on your utility bills while also lowering your energy usage.
By choosing HVAC equipment that has a high Seasonal Energy-Efficiency Ratio or SEER rating, you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are doing your part to help the environment as you reduce monthly energy costs. What's more, you may qualify to obtain a loan to help with the purchase of your air conditioning and heating equipment.
SEER Ratings for HVAC Equipment
The United States government's Environmental Protection Agency established its Energy Star labeling program to help people select the most energy-efficient appliances and equipment. Because air conditioning and heating costs typically account for about half of all home energy usage, prudent homeowners will want to look for the most efficient equipment available.
A SEER rating is based on the cooling output divided by the power input of an air conditioning system. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the equipment will be. The government gives Energy Star labels only to equipment that has a SEER rating of 13 and higher. However, beginning in 2015, the government rating will be increased to a SEER rating minimum of 14.
