The US government is implementing changes to the minimum standards for energy efficiency of HVAC systems. The goal of these standards is to ensure that homeowners are investing in systems that maximize our current technological advancements to save on energy. It’s a great way for homeowners in our area to save on monthly energy bills and these new systems also reduce the negative impact on the environment.
The minimum efficiency standard has a rating called Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and the changes mean that it will be called SEER-2. The expectations will be much higher than they are now or have ever been in the past. Of course, more efficient systems are often more expensive to build. That’s why a tax credit is in place for homeowners. You can recoup some of the cost of the more efficient geothermal unit.
