Without the right installation, you could be wasting 50¢
of every energy dollar you are spending and be uncomfortable as well!
North Carolina Alternative Energy Corp.
This nonprofit organization examined air conditioning manufacturers efficiencies versus the actual efficiencies that resulted after installation.
90% of the units tested exhibited some sort of energy-waste. 50% had an improper refrigerant charge. 40% failed to meet minimum air flow criterion. 20% were barely inside the range specified by manufacturers. A deficiency of 20% in air flow reduces the SEER rating by 17%. A 15% return air leak from a 120° attic could reduce a 12 SEER air conditioner to 6 SEER. In other words, it cuts the efficiency in half!
Texas A&M University found a 23% refrigerant undercharge could result in a 52% efficiency loss.
Pacific Gas & Electric reported these average heating energy savings:
15% savings for repair of disconnected ducts. 7.5%savings for repair of diffuser leakage. 5.6% savings for correcting low air flow. 18.4% savings for leak repair and correcting refrigerant charge.
Lakeland Electric & Water researches found that by repairing leaking duct work, cooling energy was reduced by an average of 17.4%.
Honeywell found that heat pumps lost almost 50% of their efficiency after 20 years, even if typical dust stop filter was installed. In 20 years, a 12 SEER unit could degrade to a 6 SEER. This would double the energy cost!
Louisiana State University and Gulf States Utilities found consumers could save about $30 per month just by making sure that their air conditioning system was cleaned and serviced regularly.
HVAC manufacturer's data shows that a condensing unit with a SEER of 13 matched with an old air handler would decrease the SEER to 9.2, resulting in 30% less efficiency.

When buying a home comfort system, selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air conditioner that is too large will cool your home quickly but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the job done. As Trane dealers, we can help you determine the right size system for your home comfort needs.

What's the best way to identify an energy-efficient air conditioner? Just look for the Energy Star logo. If a unit carries this symbol it means that it's at least 20% more efficient than the federal government's current minimum efficiency standard. SEER is a meansure of a unit's cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER, the higher the efficiency. The higher the effiency, the greater the potential for lower energy bills, which means your cooling system will be less costly to operate over time.
Two-stage heating reduces temperature swings within your home, maintaining a consistent, comfortable and preferred temperature. Most of the time the furnace operate in the first stage or low heat for greater efficiency and comfort. On colder days, if first stage can not satisfy the heating demand, it switches to high heat or the second stage. Standard, single-stage furnaces only offer one level of heat - high.
Think of variable-speed technology as your insurance for home comfort the way you prefer it. The variable-speed technology ensures that your home receives the amount of air required to keep you and your family comfortable. While you are enjoying exceptional comfort you are also saving money on your energy bills. That's right, variable-speed motors work so efficiently that they actually consume less electricity than standard furnace motors.
