New Energy Standard Adopted for Central Air Conditioning Systems

As of January 2008, manufacturers can no longer produce residential central air conditioners with efficiencies less than 13 SEER. The minimum seasonal energy efficiency ratio, or SEER is up to 10, which was in place since 1992. The higher the SEER ratio, the more energy efficient. You’ll pay hundreds of dollars more for an oversized unit.

Hiring the right people

Many people send mailers which advertise one low rate for a whole lot of stuff! Most of the time those offers don’t include fine print subjections, and you’ll end up paying more. Be sure the person you hire adheres to the standards. For more information visit nadca.com which shows the NADCA standards and watch a podcast video on air duct cleaning, furnace cleaning, heat exchanger, blower motor, wheel and housing cage and evaporator coil.
