Efficiency Ratings

Are you aware that on January 1, 2015 the U.S. Department of Energy mandated new energy standards for manufacturers of residential air conditioners and heat pumps? The new Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) standards vary depending on geographic location, and for residents in Florida the new SEER standard requires a minimum of 14 (an increase from a SEER of 13 in the prior year).

FPL is offering rebates for residential customers looking to purchase a new air conditioning system or to replace their current model with a higher energy efficient model. Detailed guidelines for customer eligibility and equipment qualifications, as well as rebate amounts can be found directly on their website under the Residential Air Conditioning Program Standards. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this rebate, then you’ll be happy to know that Cool Air USA is listed by the FPL as a Participating Independent Contractor (PIC) and can provide you with installation of a unit that meets the qualifying standards.

 

At Cool Air USA we make sure that our team is always educated about new changes regarding air cooling and heating systems. We were ready for the change and are ready to help our clients choose a new system that not only meets the minimum standards, but also meets their specific needs.

 

This rebate is a great incentive for anyone who has put off purchasing a new air conditioning system. Not only will our customers have the choice to benefit from an FPL rebate, but new models that meet the new SEER standards will also offer lower operation costs, which means our customers will save some money on energy costs.
