Is your old air conditioner coming to the end of its lifespan and you’re thinking about buying an energy-efficient air conditioner? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
In this article, we will provide you with information on what to look for with an energy-efficient air conditioner.
What to Look for When Buying An Energy Efficient Air Conditioner
As with any product, there are a variety of things that you should look for when purchasing an energy-efficient air conditioner:
- Size – The first thing you must do when choosing an energy-efficient air conditioner is to choose a unit that’s the right size. Many people who have chosen units that are too big have reported that the air inside their home was “too clammy or damp” while those people who chose units that were too small reported that their units had to work overtime to keep their homes cool.
- Settings – Another thing to look for when choosing an energy-efficient air conditioner is the setting that the unit offers you. Particularly, you want to verify that your new air conditioner will have an energy-saving setting that will turn off the compressor and air conditioner fan when your home has been cooled off.
- Ratings – You also want to choose an energy-efficient air conditioner based on its EER and SEER ratings. These two ratings are a measure of an air conditioners energy efficiency rating and the higher the rating means greater energy efficiency.
- Energy Star Certification – Besides the ratings for the air conditioner that you choose, you should also focus on buying a model that has an energy star certification because this certification means that your unit has either met or exceeded energy efficiency standards.
