Benefits of Having a High Efficiency AC Unit For Your Home

Tampa ACThese days having an air conditioning unit that isn’t efficient can end up costing you much more than the unit and its services are worth to you and your family. New AC units on the market today are more efficient than ever before. They take less energy to power, they’re quieter, and they generally cost far less to repair and maintain. In the article below we’ll discuss some of the benefits to having a high efficiency air conditioning unit in your home.

One of the most obvious benefits to having a high efficiency AC unit, is obviously you can save hundreds or potentially thousands of dollars every year in energy costs. This is especially the case if your AC unit is more than 20 years old. A recent research report concluded that AC units that are roughly 20 years old could be costing you 800% more in energy expenses per year than what you would be paying if you had a high efficiency modern AC unit installed. When you think about how much money that is year after year, that essentially means that a new AC unit would pay for itself in as little as 2 to 5 years, depending on how much you use it.

Another great benefit to a high efficiency AC unit is that they generally are stronger and blow more cold air into your home. High efficiency AC units not only blow more cold air into your home, they are also usually better at cooling larger homes with massive square footage.

Have you ever heard how loud older AC units can get if you are standing next to them? The sound is so loud that you can’t hear yourself think. With the newer high efficiency models they are much quieter, as they take far energy to power.

High efficiency AC units also tend to break far less than old outdated AC units. The old saying “they just don’t make them like they used to” simply doesn’t apply to AC units. Each year the newer models get more efficient and cheaper to repair and maintain, leaving home owners with more money in their pockets to dedicate to other expenses.
