Why An AC Upgrade Is a Smart Move This Summer
Managing the high summer temperatures is no easy feat for Metairie, Louisiana, homes and businesses. The challenge will be even greater if your air conditioning system is over ten years old or needs frequent repairs. In addition, it will take a toll on your energy bill. An AC upgrade is just the solution you need.
Today’s air conditioners incorporate numerous features designed to enhance cooling comfort. Our American Standard air conditioners, packaged units, and heat pumps have high-tech features such as:
- Variable-Speed Fan Motors: These motors adjust their speed according to indoor cooling needs. For example, if the air conditioner is running on a low setting, it will increase speed as temperatures rise, ensuring you won’t use maximum energy unless it is needed.
- Compressor Sound Insulators: Air conditioners don’t need to be noisy. American Standard Platinum series heat pumps, for example, reduce operating noise, so you avoid distracting on/off cycling.
- Spine Fin™ Coils: In the single-stage Silver 16 heat pump, this feature, along with a single-stage Duration™ compressor, can handle any outdoor climate condition and even prevent indoor temperature swings.
ENERGY STAR Certification
When upgrading home appliances, it’s a good idea to look for the ENERGY STAR label, which is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency. We offer select air conditioners with Energy Star qualified system ratings. You can trust that you are getting reliable performance without worrying about energy waste.
An old or inefficient air conditioner will work harder to keep you comfortable. It will, therefore, use more energy. As we face higher temperatures and more humid conditions, those costs will only increase, and not just for repairs or comfort. High indoor temperatures affect health and can lead, for example, to dehydration which can have serious health consequences.
If you are frequently spending on repairs, it’s more cost-effective to invest in an AC upgrade. Rising prices overall mean it’s even more important to make the right financial choices. Vallee Air Conditioning and Heating has the cooling systems you need to start improving energy savings and comfort this summer.
