Think of efficiency like gas mileage. The higher the efficiency of your air-conditioning unit, stated as SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), the lower the cost of operation.
For example, most homeowners have a 10 SEER air conditioner (homebuilders are currently required to install this minimum standard in their new homes). During the past two years, air conditioners have increased their efficiencies up to 16 SEER. For the average person, this means up to 55% in energy savings alone!
If this deluxe system were to be installed today, in 5 years the energy savings would pay for your investment. Now how many other products can you buy that increases your financial bottom line?
So, one of the best features about investing in high efficiency indoor comfort products is that they save you money. Think about any product (other than your home) that gains savings or value - there isn't any! Sure, the car you buy might be very efficient, but does it hold its value? Is it making you money, saving you money? Remember, it's not how much you make, it's how much you save.
Here's another example. The heart of most indoor energy savings is a variable speed air handler. The electric motor of the variable speed unit converts AC power to DC power. The DC power is so efficient that the operational savings is a minimum of $250.00 per year. That's a huge savings just for a motor, but the effect of this variable speed technology reduces your cooling bill significantly.
