Saving Money – 13 SEER

Energy Efficiency Saving You Money

The U.S. Department of Energy has set a new standard for the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps. This applies only to equipment manufactured on or after January 23rd, 2006.

You can continue to use your current system indefinitely, even if it operates below 13 SEER. However, if your system needs to be replaced, purchasing a 13 SEER model will start saving you money on your monthly bills immediately.

For every $100 spent to cool your home using a 10 SEER air conditioner, a 21 SEER system should save you approximately $52 (your cost approximately $48). Actual savings will vary based on the efficiency of your current system compared to that of a new system..

The higher the SEER number of your system the more efficient the unit and the more savings you’ll have on your electric bill. This will allow your new home comfort system installed by Black Jack Air start paying for itself that much sooner.

The average 14 SEER home air conditioning system will repay itself with in 5 years, per Florida Power & Light, and can save you as much as 50% on your air conditioning and cooling costs.

Much like miles-per-gallon (MPG) for a car, the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) measures the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps.
