In the section where I live, a/c is a necessity.
The summer time months bring intense heat, high humidity & legitimately little breeze.
There was a time when a/c units were known for using a superb deal of energy to operate, fortunately, large improvements have been made in the design & engineering of modern cooling systems. They are far more energy efficient & offer much higher SEER ratings. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, & indicates the amount of cooling produced (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used. The higher the SEER, the better the a/c unit’s efficiency. Not that many years ago, a typical cooling system would have a 10 SEER or less. This week, top quality a/c units achieve up to 26 SEERâ€¦ Residential cooling systems manufactured after 2005 are required to have a minimum of 13 SEER. Replacing an seasoned device with a high-efficiency, Energy Star rated model often saves enough currency on monthly electric bills to pay for the installation, then plus, newer cooling systems are better for the environment, covered by superior manufacturer’s warranties & offer a bunch of convenient features. It’s possible to connect these a/c units to a smart control unit, set up zone control & take advantage of effective dehumidification & air filtration. Although my seasoned a/c device was still operational, I made the update to take advantage of the higher SEER rating & better comfort. I instantly noticed a large improvement in the cleanliness, odor & overall guess of my home. I appreciate that I can adjust the temperature room by room & make swings through an app on my smartphone.
