Energy Efficient Air Conditioner Charleston

According to a recent study published by ON World, there will approximately 50 million smart homes and buildings in the United States by 2018. The majority of the increase will come from wireless sensing and control technologies, such as a wireless thermostat, in these properties. For energy efficient air conditioning companies in Charleston, this is promising news. The report goes into further detail about the energy savings and money savings that will come. Furthermore, Ninety-four percent of green homeowners say that they would recommend a green home to a friend, according to a national survey of homeowners who purchased a National Green Building Standard (NGBS)-certified green home built within the past three years. In Charleston, there are already many rebates from SCE&G and also state and federal agencies. According to a poll released by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), Americans strongly support energy efficiency and the results showed a desire for greater adoption of energy efficient technologies throughout the U.S. economy.

A few of our favorite energy efficient air conditioning and hvac products are:

1. Split AC Units

Perhaps one of the biggest trends in the energy efficient air conditioning market has been the increase interest and installation in split ac units. Often referred to as “ductless mini splits,” these units not only deliver on efficiency, they also deliver on installation costs. Generally, the installation costs for these units is 40-60% lower than a typical air conditioning unit because the duct work is not needed and the labor is a fraction of a standard ac unit. Fujitsu sells a ductless minisplit — the ASU12RLS2 — that is rated at 12,000 Btuh but actually has an output of 16,000 Btuh which costs around $2,200 and only costs $500 to $800 to have it installed. Also, watch out for the Art Cool Duct-Free Mini-Split Air Conditioning System from LG. The unit head is hidden in artwork which gives your property a unique feel and comfort.

2. Programmable Thermostats

Programmable thermostats, such as the Nest Thermostat and Honeywell Pro 8000, are often the first “quick-fix” when someone would like for their air conditioning bill to be minimized. Many homeowners and business owners tend to not properly set their thermostats and ask their ac unit to work extra hard and for longer periods of time. To combat the problem, programmable thermostats are controlled from your smart phone and offer owners the piece and comfort of knowing that their property is set at the proper temperature throughout the day and night. For instance, if you are a business owner and your employees work from 8am to 5pm, it only makes sense to have your thermostat set at 72 degrees during the workday and 78 degrees during non-business hours. For businesses, we highly recommend the Honeywell Pro 8000. For homeowners, either the Honeywell or the Nest thermostat would work just fine.

3. Trane Air Conditioner XR15

For homeowners that are looking for the “Lexus” of air conditioners, consider purchasing a Trane air conditioner in Charleston from East Cooper Heating and Air. Though the price for the unit is on the high end, many homeowners understand that the savings will be had over time.

We have installed these for many homeowners in Charleston, Mt Pleasant, Daniel Island, and Isle of Palms.
