As any Florida resident knows, a good air conditioner is essential for surviving the temperatures we experience. But with the new SEER2 regulations, it’ll be increasingly difficult to find parts and equipment for A/C units that meet the new standards in 2023. As a result, homeowners and HVAC professionals are facing major headaches – and soaring costs.
The good news is that there’s still time to upgrade your A/C unit and avoid the price hikes that will come into effect starting January 1, 2023. Call the experts at Lindstrom Air Conditioning and Plumbing to upgrade now. You’ll be able to take advantage of current prices and save big in the long run.
What is SEER2?
SEER is an important measure of cooling efficiency for air conditioners and heat pumps. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is. In short, it’s the total heat removed from the conditioned space. When choosing a new air conditioner or heat pump, it is important to consider the SEER rating to ensure you are getting the most energy-efficient unit possible. In Florida, SEER2 mandates require all new air conditioners to increase their minimum Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) to 14.3.
Should you purchase a new A/C before 2023?
In short, yes! If your air conditioner is struggling to keep up or experiencing frequent break-downs, you should upgrade your system before 2023 when prices will skyrocket and inventory plummets. But don’t forget, the SEER rating is only one thing to keep in mind when selecting new equipment. Other important factors include proper sizing, installation, and maintenance. The experts at Lindstrom Air Conditioning & Plumbing can help you find the best energy-efficient unit for your home and best meet the needs of you and your family.
