With summer approaching, many homeowners are upgrading or adding energy-efficient air conditioners to their homes. Over time, efficient air conditioning can reward home owners with lower energy bills.
By purchasing qualifying energy efficient air conditioners that earn the ENERGY STAR® logo you could be eligible for the tax credits. ENERGY STAR-rated products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines supplied by the federal government using Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio ratings (SEER). Higher SEER numbers mean more efficient products and play a big part in determining a unit’s efficiency.
ENERGY STAR qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models. Saving energy reduces pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. And choosing our ENERGY STAR products helps enhance the comfort of your home and makes for cleaner air.
However, Be aware of two things:
- Cooling cost savings compared to a 10 SEER air conditioner.
- Not all ENERGY STAR products qualify for tax credits.
