The measure for the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which compares cooling output to electrical consumption over a range of temperatures. The higher the SEER, the better the energy performance, the more you save.
Lennox has an Energy Savings Calculator on its website. Check it out! Just click on either the heating or cooling arrows, choose your state, then choose a SEER value on the blue screen. For example, for California, a SEER of 12 can save 17% yearly on your energy costs of operation, and potentially $385 over a 4-year period. Of course, those numbers are estimates, and much depends upon utility rates and hours of usage.

Orange County’s coastal cities are blessed with comfortable temperatures and cool ocean breezes, but even a ocean-front town like San Clemente needs air conditioning during those hot summer days, especially at businesses and offices. And our beautiful, but toasty inland cities, including Mission Viejo, Ladera Ranch, Santa Margarita, and others, definitely benefit from efficient air conditioning units during those heavy use months when summer heat is at its highest.
And, or course, our Canyon Lake Office serves the Inland Empire. And there are few places that would stand to benefit more than the Inland Empire from efficient air conditioning during the extended hot weather that we experience each year in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Efficiency, energy-saving air conditioners equals BIG SAVINGS on your electric bills. Call us today to start saving $$$$.
