What Is a SEER Rating?

When you are shopping for a new HVAC unit, you need to understand the meaning of a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER, which measures an AC unit’s energy efficiency. SEER measures the ratio of cooling capacity to power input; the higher the rating, the more efficient the air conditioner. As well, the lower the SEER rating, the lower the production. If a unit has a SEER rating of 15 or more, it will provide high levels of efficiency and even save you money on your monthly cooling bills.

You want to choose the unit for your home that is most energy efficient and that uses the least amount of electricity. Your AC’s SEER rating helps keep your utility bills in check. At present, federal regulations require that a SEER rating be at least a 13, and a 25 SEER as the highest rating currently attainable.

If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner, keep the SEER rating standards in mind, and also make sure you are aware of your area’s codes. Remember that a SEER rating helps identify how much your new AC unit may cost to run, and enables you to make fair comparisons from one brand to another.

The Benefits of a Digital Thermostat

The popularity of the new programmable thermostats is growing exponentially because they offer significant cost savings. As the cost of energy rises, it pays to try to reduce its use in any possible way. Programmable thermostats are adjustable and can be set to the temperature and time of day that works best for your whole household.  Plus, if you are still using a manual thermostat, it is simple to add a programmable one as an easy do-it-yourself project.

When you use a programmable thermostat, you can raise or lower the temperature in your home to the comfort you want. For every degree you raise or lower, you save up to 2% on your energy costs. As well, you don’t need to have your AC on high while no one is at home. A programmable thermostat can be set to a schedule that works with your daily routine. It will keep you comfortable with warm or cool air when you are home and reduce your energy usage when you are away. In addition, a programmable thermostat is capable of helping you maintain a consistent temperature in every area and room in your home.
