Warm weather in Florida will continually peak in the upcoming months, creating higher temperatures and humidity in your home. Stay cool with advanced A/C technology built into energy-efficient air conditioning systems.
If you’re in need of getting your A/C unit repaired, maintained or replaced, a professional HVAC technician can help you get the job done, but first consider these important advanced A/C technology factors:
- Efficiency — The seasonal energy efficiency ratio, or SEER, of the air conditioning unit you purchase needs to be at least 13—the industry minimum—or higher. The higher the SEER ratio, the more energy efficient the unit will be, resulting in lower energy consumption costs.
- Temperature and fan control — Look for the energy efficiency ratio (EER) or high temperature rating on your air conditioning unit. This measurement will help you determine which units will work best in your home during the hottest and most humid weather conditions. Having control over the unit’s fan keeps you in control of the unit’s operation time and ultimately its energy consumption. This is another key feature of advanced A/C technology that helps keep your home well-ventilated.
- Filter check light — An A/C unit that has a filter check light will make remembering to clean the filter much more convenient for you. Regularly checking and replacing the filter will keep it running efficiently throughout the hot and humid season.
- Variable-speed air handler — Advanced A/C technology includes this air handler, which operates at multiple speeds rather than the standard two. This flexibility means you’re using only the amount of electricity that’s needed to keep you comfortable—no more, no less.
