By today’s efficiency standards, a 10-year-old rooftop unit is old. If your system was installed more than 10 years ago, it may have a low SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating.
SEER is a measure of the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system. An older unit could have a 6 SEER or 8 SEER rating, compared to new units that typically have a SEER of 12 or higher.
Replacing your old system could easily translate in to a 50% energy savings per year!
You’ll experience greater comfort with a new rooftop unit, too. Many of today’s systems feature advances such as outdoor air economizers to bring in outside air when conditions are right. This provides free cooling as well as on-demand ventilation to improve indoor air quality.
In addition, the refrigerants used in today’s cooling units are safe for the environment.
With energy savings adding up every month, a new HVAC rooftop package unit can pay for itself in no time.
