All About The New Energy Saving Central Air Conditioning Units

Summary:
Almost eighty percent of the new U.S. houses are installing central air conditioning units while construction.
The reason why most people are opting for this is that the central unit keeps the room temperature in a
comfortable level as it filters and dehumidifies the air. This system is all the more beneficial for those who
have allergies or asthma. But those having existing homes do not need to worry, as the central air

Article Body:
Almost eighty percent of the new U.S. houses are installing central air conditioning units while construction.
The reason why most people are opting for this is that the central unit keeps the room temperature in a
comfortable level as it filters and dehumidifies the air. This system is all the more beneficial for those who
have allergies or asthma. But those having existing homes do not need to worry, as the central air
conditioning units can even be set up in houses that have already been constructed!


If you are looking for the best central air conditioning unit, you need to keep certain points in mind. The first
thing to consider is the size of your home. The air conditioning units are available in various sizes, so
carefully pick the size that you think would be the best for your home. Remember, that the machine would
not be able to properly dehumidify air if it’s too large for its purpose. You should rather get a contractor to
help you choose, as they calculate the required size with a method named “Manual J”.


The next important thing to look into is the SEER rating, i.e., the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The
technology has changed today, and the energy efficiency has also improved as a result. So the new air
conditioners are supposed to have a SEER rating of 13, whereas, a rating of only 7 or 8 was enough for the
machines installed a couple of decades ago.


You can actually save quite a lot in your electricity bills if you substitute your old and ineffective air
conditioner with a new central air conditioning set up. In fact, you can expect to save more than $500 a year
with the new SEER rating, which has gone up to 13 from 11.5. To get the latest in energy efficiency, choose
a compressor having the Scroll(tm) technology.
The Energy Star is one more criterion which your central air conditioner should have. This is basically a
certificate to denote that the equipment consumes less energy than the other new models. The new models
obviously consume a lot less than the machines dating back a couple of years.


Be careful while choosing the location for putting up the outdoor unit of your machine. This is important
because it would not be able to ventilate air properly if it is put under a deck, or is covered up by plants.
These units are often noisy. So keep them far from your deck or your patio, or any place where you want to
enjoy some quietude.
