Buying a new air conditioner is an investment in your Largo, FL, home. A new, efficient air conditioner can help you reduce the cost of your home’s high utility bills. Here are four ways a new air conditioner can help you save money.

1. More Energy Efficient Than an Older System

Since 2015, new split-system central air conditioners must have a minimum SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of 14 in Florida. The higher the SEER, the more energy-efficient your air conditioner will be. While you may pay a little more upfront for units with higher SEERs, you will soon see the rewards in energy savings.

2. Fewer Repair Calls

You can expect your air conditioner to have a few minor repairs over its lifespan. However, the older it gets, you may need more frequent and more expensive repairs. A new system will require fewer repairs, and initially, the manufacturer’s warranty will cover them.

3. No Worries About Dealing With R-22 Shortage

As of Jan. 1, 2020, R-22 can no longer be manufactured in or imported into the United States. If your older air conditioner needs a recharge of refrigerant, it can be costly because of the limited supply. It’s more cost-efficient to purchase a new system than to have yours retrofitted for the new environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant.

4. Rebates or Tax Credits

If you purchase a high-efficiency central air system, you could be eligible for rebates from the manufacturer or your local energy provider. You may also be eligible for a refundable tax credit.
