AC Services | We put all our energy into efficiency.
AC Services | If you’re like most people, energy efficiency and cost savings are at the top of your wish list when considering which home heating and cooling system to choose.
Like mythical genies, our engineers are in the wish-fulfillment business, dreaming up a wide variety of sophisticated options to grant virtually any need—including some of the world’s most efficient cooling and heating solutions.
As you research all your options, you’ll no doubt come across your share of industry-standard efficiency rating systems. They may look intimidating, but in a nutshell, all you need to know is the higher number, the higher the efficiency, and the lower your long-term energy costs will be.
In January 2015, the US Department of Energy enacted new minimum efficiency rating guidelines for split and packaged air conditioners which are defined by three regions of the country: North, Southeast and Southwest.
All your life, you’ve heard that you get what you pay for, and energy efficiency is no exception. The higher the efficiency of a heat pump, air conditioner or furnace, the more sophisticated the unit, and therefore, the more it tends to cost.
But despite the higher price tag, energy-efficient units invariably come with lower utility bills. Significantly lower, in many cases. As a result, you could see your additional investment paid back in only a few short years. And long after you’ve broken even with savings, you’ll continue to save on your energy bills―plus you get to enjoy the added comfort benefits that usually come with the model’s increased functionality.
How long would it take for one of our fuel-efficient systems to pay off for you? Your local Carrier expert would be happy to break down all the numbers for you.
Matching your system for optimum efficiency.
Additional factors that affect the efficiency of your air conditioner or heat pump system are your indoor coil and blower motor. If your indoor coil isn’t properly sized to match your outdoor condensing unit, the system may not give you the stated SEER and/or HSPF ratings and could even develop performance problems. Not having a variable-speed blower motor means the system will tend to consume more electricity. That’s because the fan will frequently be operating a higher speeds than necessary to move the conditioned air in the house.
When you replace an existing outdoor unit, make sure you talk to your Carrier Expert about the potential effects of the indoor system on efficiency. It may be wise to replace both units in order to assure longer system life and gain peak performance, efficiency and comfort.
