The Benefits of a New Air Conditioner

Cooling in Salem, ORMany home and business owners struggle with knowing when it’s time to upgrade their air conditioning system. Our team, here at Loren’s Heating and Air, will assist you every step of the way and will make sure you understand every detail of the air conditioner replacement process. We want you to feel comfortable with weighing the pros and cons of continuing to pay for maintenance and AC Repair in Salem for your current system, versus investing in a new system and the benefits that offers. When buying a new air conditioner, some of the most important things to consider are increased energy efficiency and performance, and how that will affect your wallet:

Efficiency Ratings for Air Conditioning Systems

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The Federal Government made it mandatory for a SEER of 13 to be the minimum for all central air conditioning systems in 2006. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio measures the air conditioning system’s performance. Ratings up to 23 for SEER are considered to be on the highest end of performance for cooling units. The better the SEER, the more expensive the air conditioner, but this means you will also be spending less on cooling costs. For cooling systems with moderate to good efficiency, SEER ratings should be between 14 and 18. EER stands for Energy Efficiency Rating and this provides a description of the cooling capacity of the system running in your home or business. The higher the EER is, the greater the system’s cooling capacity is.

Air Conditioner Refrigerant Types

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has begun a Phase Out program, which will lead to a U.S. ban of all ozone-depleting substances, such as R-22. If you have an air conditioner that requires this old refrigerant, your system can still be used but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. Eventually R-22 will be unavailable because it depletes the ozone. R410-A is the new standard and current requirement for all newer systems. This type of refrigerant has less environmental impact and is therefore preferred. There will come a time when it is required that older systems that use R-22 be replaced with one that uses R410-A, or that they are modified so that they can use R410-A. The type of refrigerant your air conditioner requires is only one element in the pros of upgrading to a new system, and if your current unit is has been used for 10-15 years, now is a great time to look into having it replaced to increase energy efficiency, decrease any potential of negative environmental impact, and to ensure you’re operating a safe system. When you upgrade to a new cooling system, you will notice significant savings due to boosted energy efficiency. We’re standing by to help you find the ideal cooling system for you!
