How do I know my AC is energy efficient?

It seems like since the internet, the world is on information overload.

Everyone has information on something and an opinion on everything.

The problem is that everyone feels their information and opinion is of utmost important to the world. This means there is a lot of wrong information on the internet. When you want to know how to tell if your AC unit is energy efficient, you need to go to the experts. While shopping for your new air conditioning unit, look at the big yellow tag that is attached to every appliance available. This tag is your ‘Energy Guide’ and it gives you all of the information about the air conditioner. You are able to find out how much energy the unit uses and it will also tell the approximate amount it is going to cost you to run for a year. This is important for someone who is trying to save money on their energy bills. This is based on the EER or Energy Efficiency Ratio. When you live in an area that requires air conditioning for at least nine months a year, as I do, it is important to know the EER of your future air conditioning unit. It is important to know, prior to buying the AC unit, what it may cost you to run one particular unit as opposed to what a cheaper or more recommended AC unit may cost to run. It is also important to look at the ratings given by those who have that particular AC unit. Don’t blindly look at all the information you find, but look at the websites that come from good HVAC companies and not individuals with their personal views.
