Lower energy costs. The most obvious benefit of installing a high efficiency air conditioner is that it saves you money on your energy bills. The more efficient your air conditioner is, the less energy it needs to operate and the lower your energy costs will be. The amount of energy you save will depend on the efficiency of your current model. The larger the jump in efficiency from your old to your new air conditioner, the more of a decrease you’ll see in your energy costs.
Improved home comfort. Many of the features that come with high efficiency air conditioners will provide your home with better comfort levels. A variable speed air handler, for example, will allow for more consistent airflow and a two stage compressor will allow for less temperature swings in your home.
Fewer repairs. High efficiency air conditioners typically experience less wear-and-tear than lower-efficiency units. When less stress is placed on your air conditioner, the need for repairs can significantly decrease. Fewer repairs over the lifetime of an air conditioner will increase the value of your investment in a high-efficiency unit.
Longer operating life. Because they experience minimal wear-and-tear, high efficiency air conditioners typically have longer operating lives than lower-efficiency units. This is another benefit that increases the value of your investment in a higher efficiency unit.
