Air Conditioning and Heating Systems
The Key To A Great Air Conditioning System is Energy Efficiency
Your air conditioning systems’ efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the SEER rating. The SEER rates energy use for different types and brands of equipment.
Higher SEER ratings means more money saved in energy costs. This is because the air conditioning unit is more energy efficient. Most ac systems that were installed before 1992 are 10 SEER rated or below.

Is your heating and cooling system Energy Star qualified?
If your your air conditioning equipment is more than 10 years old, or your house is not cooling properly, you should have it inspected by a professional HVAC contractor. If your system needs to be upgraded due to it not performing efficiently you consider replacing it with an air conditioning unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR rating.
Depending on your location, replacing your old heating and cooling equipment

Your cooling or heating equipment my have become less efficient.
Are some rooms in your house too cold or too hot?
Improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation could be the cause. No one is home for long periods of the day and you do not have a programmable thermostat. Install a programmable thermostat or have a good contractor install one and instruct you on its use to start saving energy and money while they’re away or sleeping.
Humidity Problems – High Volume of Dust
Poor equipment operation, inadequate equipment, and leaky duct work can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer. Your home has excessive dust. Leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces and basements and distribute them throughout your house. Sealing your ducts may be a solution.
Is your heating and air conditioning system noisy?
You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment.
