Posted on AC Services, Blog, Tips January 15, 2019

For those looking to be more energy efficient, find an energy efficient AC unit. Here is a list of reviews of the most energy efficient units available.

Living in South Florida, you’re probably tired of paying those 12% higher than average utility bills. The strides that modern technology has made in creating the most energy efficient AC units are astounding.

Since you can save between 20-40% on your energy bills by replacing your AC unit with a more energy efficient model, what are you waiting for?

First things first: you need to find the model that speaks to you. We can help there. Read on to find your perfect fit!

Find the Most Energy Efficient AC Unit

Not all AC units are created equal. Some have higher SEER ratings, some have lower profiles, some have all the bells and whistles. Consider all the above in making your decision.

York Affinity YXV Series

The York Affinity YXV series is the creme de la creme of energy-efficient AC units. These York units have up to a 20 SEER rating-yes, you read that right!

Concern for energy efficiency is rooted in two things. The first is, of course, your energy bill. You want to be sure you’re not wasting a dime because of an inefficient AC unit-in South Florida, that adds up quickly.

The second is the environment. The York Affinity YXV series uses next generation R-410A refrigerant, which is certified environmentally friendly. It’s a purchase you can feel good about.

York LX YCG Series

The York LX YCG series offer units to rival their big brothers in the Affinity series. They’re rated for seventeen SEER, which is still high above the industry standard of thirteen.

They’re also approved for use of the environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant. the LX YCG series features MicroChannel aluminum coils, too. This is important because aluminum coils are much stronger than old-fashioned copper coils, which corrode easily. That saves you money on maintenance long-term.

Trane XL20i

If you’re looking for the best energy efficient air conditioner, look no further than the Trane XL20i. Like the York Affinity models, the XL18i has a whopping twenty SEER rating.

It’s EnergyStar rated, has a two-stage cooling system, and includes a twelve-year limited warranty. Since the average AC unit’s lifespan is between 15-25 years, that covers half or more of its potential lifespan.

Bonus: this unit might even qualify you for a federal tax credit, thanks to its excellent SEER rating!

Ruud Ultra Series HE Two-Stage UASL/UARL-JEC

This 19.5-SEER rated AC unit is hard to beat when it comes to features. This is hands down the best air conditioning unit for those who want a sleek style in their yard. It’s only 33 inches tall and designed with simplicity in mind.

You can also have it installed with a Serial Communicating Air Handler. In conjunction with a series 500 thermostat, this unit offers one-of-a-kind comfort personalization in your home.

It’ll message you about diagnostics, too, so you’ll know right away if it needs to be serviced for any reason. It’s truly a smart AC unit for the twenty-first century!
