Why Upgrading to a High-Efficiency Furnace & Air Conditioner Is Worth the Investment

Omaha springs turn into sweltering summers. But that doesn’t mean you have to deal with it. Before summer gets here, you should consider switching to a high efficiency air conditioner. You don’t want to get caught without a working AC system in the heat of the season. Getzschman Heating & Cooling explains why upgrading to a high-efficiency air conditioning system this summer is worth the investment.

Energy Costs Dwindle

Since your air conditioner is the biggest consumer of energy in your home, it means it is probably one of most expensive pieces of equipment in your home when it comes to energy bills. Newer, high-efficiency systems can help lower your energy costs, though. They come in a variety of options and prices. We suggest choosing one with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER. A rating of 14 or greater is usually sufficient to see more savings.

Tip: This year the United States Department of Energy instituted SEER rating standards changes across the country. Check our G-Force blog post that covers all the details on the new SEER rating standards for heating and cooling systems.

Less Maintenance Required

High-efficiency air conditioners also have a track record for requiring less maintenance and fewer  repairs, which also saves you money down the road. Since they are more efficient at running, high-efficiency systems tend to take on less stress, giving them a longer operating life, as well. For you, this means less untimely breakdowns and maintenance calls.

Be More Comfortable in Your Home

The more efficient your system is, the better it will be at keeping your home comfortable, which is always worth the investment. High-efficiency AC systems allow for more consistent airflow and fewer temperature swings. This means you’ll be comfortable in your home, no matter what room you are in.
