The Benefits of Upgrading to an Energy Efficient Air Conditioner
If you are thinking about replacing your air conditioning unit, it’s a wise choice to choose an Energy Star certified system. They offer higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) ratings, consuming less energy than traditional models. They also offer the following benefits:
- Lower utility bills – Highly efficient air conditioners require less energy to operate, which means you spend less to cool your home.
- More consistent temperatures – A variable-speed motor operates at a wide range of speeds, allowing the system to deliver even and consistent air flow throughout the home.
- Improved indoor air quality – A variable-speed motor also improves your home’s air quality. When the motor is constantly operating through the “fan” setting, it slowly circulates the air, allowing the air filtration system to capture more dust and pollen.
- Increase your home’s resale value – A new air conditioning unit can inspire potential buyers to put an offer on your home, as they won’t have to incur additional costs to upgrade the system.
If your air conditioning unit constantly cycles on and off, or you often hear strange noises coming from your equipment, the experts at Melton’s Heating & Air Conditioning can help. We will thoroughly inspect your system to identify the extent of the damage and let you know what your options are. We can also provide you with regular maintenance services to help ensure your equipment is running optimally and safely.
