The noise produced by the unit rated in decibels.
60dbs is equivalent to a normal conversation
90 dbs is equivalent to a lawn mower.
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of cooling over an entire season.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio is a measure of the cooling efficiency of your air conditioner or heat pump. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system is at converting electricity into cooling power.
8 cents/kwh for an 8 SEER unit will cost $360
8 cents/kwh for an 13 SEER unit will cost $222
At 8 cents/kwh, replacing an 8 SEER, 3-ton air conditioner with a new 13 SEER system can save you $138 per year on your electric bill ($360-$222=$138)
On January 1, 2013, the U.S. Congress passed The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 for federal tax payers who install qualified energy-efficient retrofits in their home. This includes higher efficiency heating and cooling systems, such as central air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps and packaged systems. These credits are only available for improvements made between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013.
An eligible tax payer may claim up to $500 in tax credits, subject to caps based on the type of equipment installed.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($300 limit) for central split-system air conditioners meeting or exceeding 16 SEER and 13 EER.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($300 limit) for split-system air-source heat pumps meeting or exceeding 15 SEER, 12.5 EER and 8.5 HSPF.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($300 limit) for package air conditioners and gas packs meeting or exceeding 14 SEER and 12 EER.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($300 limit) for packaged heat pumps and dual-fuel packaged systems meeting or exceeding 14 SEER, 12 EER and 8 HSPF.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($150 limit) for furnaces meeting or exceeding 95% AFUE.
- Up to 10% of installed costs ($50 limit) for advanced main air circulating fan.
Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. By choosing ENERGY STAR certified heating and cooling equipment and taking steps to optimize its performance, you can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect our climate by helping prevent harmful carbon pollution and reducing other greenhouse gases.
ENERGY STAR qualified central air conditioners:
- have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings, making them over 15% more efficient than conventional models.
The central air conditioner also needs a blower motor – which is usually part of the furnace – to blow the cool air through the duct system. The only way to ensure that your new air conditioner performs at its rated efficiency is to replace your heating system at the same time. It’s especially recommended if your furnace is over 15 years old. If you purchase a new energy-efficient air conditioner but connect it to an older furnace and blower motor, your system will not perform to its rated efficiency.
- 10-year on internal functional parts.
- 10-year on compressor
EXCLUSIONS: The following are not covered by the manufacturer's warranty, except for the following conditions: (you may want to read the manufacturer's warranty on their website. ) The two most important are listed below. Each manufacturer has their own exclusions.
If you have any questions regarding the various manufacturer warranties we will be happy to answer them
Basically it boils down to two very important issues with equipment manufacturers:
1. Do not mismatch equipment. Equipment must be installed according to manufacturers specifications. This also means no brand mismatching. For example, a Goodman condenser will work with a Trane air handler, but is prohibited. Although it is not uncommon, it is usually not standard practice and could void your warranty.
2. Units ordered over the internet, by telephone or other electronic means should or must be installed by a capable technician or an HVAC contractor. This is to ensure proper system installation and to complied with local building codes.
*If you are the homeowner you could pull your own permits (under Homeowner Permit Application). Save you money this way, but you might have to provide some technical drawings, calculations, etc. This of course depends on the complexity of the job. For an equipment change out, this becomes really easy.
*Hire a technician or contractor that you feel is capable of performing the job, preferably a HVAC contractor.
Going this route vs. hiring a full heating and cooling service company could save you thousands of dollars. Make sure to check with your local building code office about what is required.
