The average household spends more than $2,200 a year on energy bills, with nearly half of this going to heating and cooling costs. Florida Energy Consultants can help you make smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that can help save on energy costs, improve your overall comfort at home, and help fight global warming.
R-22 is a refrigerant that is often used in air-conditioning equipment. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, because R-22 depletes the ozone layer, in 2020, R-22 will no longer be produced or imported. EPA has prohibited the manufacture of new air-conditioning systems that use R-22. New energy efficient air conditioners save energy costs. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you can save significantly on your energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
If your HVAC equipment is more than 10 years old or not keeping your house comfortable, have it evaluated by one of our professional HVAC contractors. If it is not performing efficiently or needs upgrading, consider replacing it with a brand new and improved, high efficient unit. Depending on how old your current AC is, replacing your old heating and cooling equipment with new, high efficient qualified equipment can cut your energy bill up to thousands of dollars annually! Be sure to ask our consultants about additional savings through potential rebates and tax incentives.
