Energy Efficient Air Conditioners

Written by Mark Maxon on . Posted in Blog

Everybody wants their home to be a place of comfort and refreshment during the scorching summer heat. The trick to staying cool during the warmer months for an affordable price lies in the efficiency of your air conditioning unit. If your house is being cooled by an old unit, or if your energy bill is simply too high to afford daily comfort, it may be time to contact your local HVAC company. You may be surprised how much an energy efficient air conditioner can impact your comfort and your wallet.

Benefits of Energy Efficient Air Conditioners

One of the most obvious benefits to making the change to an energy efficient air conditioning unit is the money you will save each month on your energy bill. One way to ensure that your cost is minimized is to have the right sized unit. Contrary to popular belief, bigger is not always better. If an air conditioning unit is too large, then it will cool the space too quickly and shut off before it has time to dehumidify the house, leaving the house cold and clammy. In addition, the starting, stopping, and restarting of the AC unit wastes electricity and puts unwanted strain on the compressor. Your local air conditioning company in Utah can help determine the appropriate size unit for your house based on several factors such as the size of your house, local climate, window size, and even shade offered from nearby trees.

Key Features of Energy Efficient Air Conditioners

There are several features that you will want to make sure are present in your new air conditioning unit to provide maximum efficiency. A high quality air conditioning unit is no doubt an investment, but it is sure to be one that pays for itself over time. It is crucial that you know what characteristics will make it a valuable investment.

● Quiet compressor with a sound blanket
● High Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER)
● Right size AC unit (measured in British Thermal Units to Watt Hours)
● Scroll compressor
● Good metal cabinet for coil protection

Make it Last

Now that you have decided to upgrade your cooling system, and join in on the life of affordable luxury, you need to determine to protect your investment. Make sure to have your HVAC specialist conduct routine maintenance checks to ensure that your machine is running efficiently. This will give you added comfort and peace of mind.

    “Today my outside air conditioning unit went out while inside it was blowing hot air. The heat in the house got up to 85 degrees in the evening, what would it be in the middle of a hot summer day. Kris Keller was here within the hour and had it fixed in no time at all. It’s only been an hour since he left but it’s already down to 78 degrees in here. I’m loving the feel of the cool air. THANK YOU!”

    This is a company you can count on! Purchased my heater several months ago last night at 10:50pm we realized it was not working. I called them expecting to leave a message that our furnace was not working to my surprise the phone was answered by a person who was very helpful in getting my information and scheduling someone to come the next day and on top of that they showed up early and got us up and running, our service guy (Chris) was very informative on what caused our issue; by the way it was human error nothing was wrong with the operation of our furnace. We found this company at the home show last year, they have gained our respect and loyalty for years to come.

    We called ctr after a friend recommended them. our ac compressor had bit the dust in St George. Kris the owner came down in just 2 days and had us a new upgraded unit and saved us 200 over others we called. they were very professional and left our house clean :). thanks for the great job and the quick response!

    My recent experience with CTR was great! My AC was down and out for days. CTR replaced the Heater/AC problem in only 5 hours. Well appreciated.

    I purchased a home where the central AC unit wasn’t even connected to the house. Called various HVAC companies in the middle of summer; many could not make it for a couple of days, others quoted a fee just to come to my home to look at the unit. I contacted CTR, and not only they were there the same day, they did not charge a trip fee.

    Kris and his crew connected the central air conditioner to my home, charged it and even stayed late into the evening to ensure the my AC was working as it should.

    I was very impressed with their quick response time and willingness to go above and beyond! I have recommended CTR Heating and Air to others and will continue to do so.
