The first thing you’ll notice when you experience your brand new America Standard air conditioning system is how unbelievable cool and irresistible comfortable your home now is. And not surprisingly, after a few minutes, you may in fact decide you never want to leave your house again. Ever. Now, while we are flattered by this possibility, we are also greatly concerned by what would happen if everyone who owns one of our spectacular systems never left their perfectly climate-controlled homes. So please, feel free to enjoy your American Standard air system. But if it’s not asking too much, just try not to overdo it.
If your current air conditioner is more than ten years old, it could be operating at lower then 10.00 SEER. Compare the estimated annual cooling bill of a 10.00 SEER system to that of a new system with a higher SEER such as American Standard’s 20, 16, 14, 12, or 11. For instance, if the annual cooling bill of a 10.00 SEER system was $800, it could potentially cost $444 for an 20.00 SEER system, or an annual savings of 44%. These numbers should remain consistent over time as long as preventative system maintenance is performed on a regular basis.
