Is it time for a new air conditioner?

When summer temperatures and humidity arrive in Ohio, you need an air conditioner that’s ready to perform to your expectations. If your current central air system isn’t up to the task, it’s time to upgrade. Performance Heating and Cooling installs advanced, affordable, energy-efficient, and high performance air conditioners and cooling systems for both home and business.

Our comfort designers will tailor your needs to the perfect-sized system for your home or business. We are committed to giving our customers the air conditioning solution that is right for them at fair prices.

So What Does the SEER Rating of an AC system Mean?

An air conditioning systems energy efficiency is classified by the S.E.E.R. rating. The SEER, which stands for (seasonal energy efficiency ratio), rating of the energy efficiency an air conditioning unit during a season of operation. Using air conditioning equipment with a higher SEER rating means the unit uses energy more efficiently than an air conditioning unit with a lower SEER rating.

Ten years ago the previous national SEER standard was of 10. The current national standard for the SEER rating is 13 and these central air conditioning units are between 20% to 30% more efficient than the previous standard. This means you will spend less of your money each month on energy bills to cool your home each summer without sacrificing the comfort of you and your whole family.

Variable-Capacity AC Compressor

The Variable capacity compressor is the quietest most efficient offering we have today. It operates at different speeds depending on the need for cooling, anywhere from 35-100%. These compressors offer more speeds than the two stage systems. This allows the AC to cool your home at lower speeds for longer periods of time while still having the higher speeds available for when the outdoor temps get higher. The variable speed AC systems run longer without cycling on or off and stays only at the speed needed to keep you comfortable. This makes the variable speed system the most energy efficient of the three types.

Two-Stage / Multi Stage AC Compressor

The two stage AC compressor means the compressor has two levels of operation: high for the very hot Summer days and low for milder Summer days. A two stage AC unit is like actually having two units for the price of one. On milder days the compressor comes on initially at 70% and if it can't cool your house at that level it then moves to 100%. Since the low setting is adequate to meet home cooling demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and produces a more even leveled home indoor air temperature. The two stage compressor is more efficient than the single stage compressor because it doesn't cycle on and off as much, which means less wear and tear on the compressor.The two stage system also removes twice as much humidity as the single stage system because the two stage stays on at the lower level for a longer period of time.

Single-Stage AC Compressor

A single stage AC compressor operates at one speed all the time full cold, the thermostat controls the temperature in the house by turning the AC system and compressor on and off. Most Ohio homes with central air conditioning use a single stage compressor. These type of compressors were standard for decades. The new single stage models use leading edge technology which makes them much more energy efficient compared to older single stage models which had much lower SEER ratings.
