Ratings, Like SEER, Can Help You Find a New Air Conditioner for Your Texas Home
Everything is bigger in Texas - from San Antonio to Dallas/Fort Worth - including cooling bills if you are running an inefficient air conditioner in your home. There is no denying it; a Texas summer is HOT, maybe not so humid, but hot. That is why it is important to find an air conditioner that has a high-efficiency AC rating. The best indicator of quality and efficiency is the SEER ratings of an air conditioning system. High-efficiency air conditioners are constructed using quality parts and the latest technology. They can improve home comfort while lowering the amount of money you spend on cooling your home. Old air conditioners produced before 2006 had to meet a minimum 10-SEER cooling efficiency in order to be sold to homeowners. Today, air conditioners must be rated at least 13 SEER. This is a significant increase and that is only the minimum!
If you are looking for an ultra-high efficiency air conditioning unit, Westinghouse has the model for you. We offer an up to 25.5 SEER iQ Drive® air conditioner that is nearly twice the efficiency of standard-efficiency air conditioners available today and is one of the most quiet air conditioners - when paired with the correct indoor, energy-efficient air handler or furnace match. Bigger efficiency leads to bigger savings and a bigger, fatter wallet. The motor in your indoor component can also help increase the home comfort of your home by supplying more even temperatures and increased dehumidification capabilities. Air conditioner SEER ratings will be the best indicator of the potential energy savings you can achieve with your new unit. It also can be a big indicator of air conditioner prices. A more efficient air conditioner is going to have a bigger price tag, but can help you save money over its life.
By choosing an air conditioner with a high-efficiency rating, it may make your utility bills smaller, but you'll forgive us. Smaller bills mean more money in your pocket to do the things you enjoy - whether it is enjoying the hip music scene in Austin or the world-class shopping in Dallas.
