New air conditioner saves money

Summers in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, are especially long, hot and muggy.

The air conditioner is a crucial component of a comfortable home.

We need the central cooling system to combat temperatures in the mid to upper nineties on a regular basis. The air conditioner is essential to a good night’s sleep, productive day and healthy indoor air quality. It also greatly affects the household budget. Running an air conditioner non stop for approximately eight straight months can get expensive. It’s important that the system operates as efficiently as possible. I spent more on an Energy Star qualified air conditioner with an industry leading SEER rating. The system I chose features adaptable-speed technology. Unlike two-stage systems that can operate at either maximum or low capacity, the air conditioner can adjust output in one percent increments. It can operate anywhere between forty and one hundred percent capacity. There is rarely a time when the AC needs to blast at maximum speed. Most of the time, the system can run at lower speeds and maintain a consistent indoor temperature. The longer run times allow the air conditioner to do a better job of filtering out contaminants and managing excess humidity. The operation makes less noise, uses less energy and puts less strain on components. Plus, when the new AC system was installed, I upgraded to zone control. The ability to set an independent temperature in each room avoids cooling unoccupied areas. It also lets me customize thermostat settings to the specific needs of each space. I save money and enjoy superior comfort.
