We have the advantage of zone control and a smart thermostat which helps to further optimize energy conservation and control over the indoor environment
Living in the southern part of the country, central air conditioning is an absolute necessity. We run the cooling system for approximately nine months of the year, and it often needs to handle temperatures in the upper nineties or even triple digits. System efficiency and reliability are especially important. When we bought our house, the air conditioner was already outdated and struggling. We knew that it was nearing the end of its service life. While replacing the AC was on our to-do list of home improvements, there were a lot of projects that took precedence. A leaking roof, lack of insulation, rusted water heater and broken dishwasher needed to be handled first. There were issues with the electric not meeting code, clogged drains and water damage to some walls, floors and ceilings. It took us several years to finally make the investment into a new central air conditioner. I can’t even imagine how much money we could have saved if we had made that step sooner. We paid for several minor air conditioner repairsthat added up to a significant cost. Plus, the old cooling system ran just about non stop trying to keep up with demands. It used a tremendous amount of energy. Our monthly utility bills are quite a bit lower because the new air conditioner is so much more efficient. It also provides far superior comfort and air quality. We have the advantage of zone control and a smart thermostat which helps to further optimize energy conservation and control over the indoor environment. It’s also very nice that this air conditioner is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty.
