If your air conditioner is more than ten years old, you probably need to start shopping for a new cooling system. Here are the benefits to replacing your outdated unit with an energy efficient newer one:
Lower Utility Bills
Newer AC models offer reduced energy consumption which in turn means you will have lower utility bills. The savings is usually found on the yellow Energy Guide label of the unit you are looking at and estimates the average electricity the unit will use over the course of a year.
Multiply that savings of the average life of the system and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much money you’ll be saving.
Family Air recommends Energy Star certified units. Models that have Energy Star certification must meet strict efficiency standards which can substantially reduce your household energy consumption.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
In addition to cooling your home, air conditioners are responsible for controlling the quality of your indoor air by keeping it clean. The newest air conditioners offer superior air purification, humidity control and even ventilation.
As air conditioners age, they don’t always keep you quite as cool and can become noisy. New units enable the air conditioner to vary its operating speed by tiny increments for consistent air temperature. They also come with a compressor sound insulator, so you won’t even know it’s working hard to keep your family cool.
Older air conditioners are not always compatible with high-tech features or add-ons, but most new cooling systems have a long list of options. For instance, if you’ve been waiting to invest in zoning systems or switch to a smart thermostat, you can finally do both with a new air conditioner. From custom cooling options to energy-efficient features, high-tech air conditioners have it all.
