New Government Mandate Affects Home Cooling SystemsBryant Does Whatever it Takes to Educate Consumers
INDIANAPOLIS (January 2, 2006), Though it is chilly outside, it is not too early to begin thinking about your home cooling system and how you can save money during the warm months ahead. On January 23, 2006, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) raised the minimum allowable energy efficiency standard for new residential air conditioning systems from 10 to 13 seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). This shift to 13 SEER will provide tangible energy savings and real environmental benefits for consumers nationwide through decreased energy consumption.
Bryant's Puron® Refrigerant
Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems applauds the new standard and is committed to doing "Whatever it Takes" to educate the community regarding this new government regulation.The new mandate means that home cooling system manufacturers must now design products that comply with the 13 SEER rating. Homeowners are not required to replace existing units as a result of this mandate, though by doing so, they may shave up to 23 percent off their energy bill."
This year, Bryant is introducing a new line of products that will provide exceedingly comfortable indoor air, reliability, value and style. The company's new 13 SEER models will be up to 20 percent smaller in footprint, weigh up to 30 percent less and use up to 40 percent less refrigerant while decreasing in operating sound levels. The improved top-of-the-line Evolution™ System will reach levels of up to 20 SEER while allowing users to control heating, cooling, humidity, indoor air quality, schedules and maintenance reminders from a single, easy-to-navigate control.
When it comes to SEER, increased energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact go hand-in-hand. The new 13 SEER standard conserves energy and reduces associated carbon dioxide emissions generated in the production of electricity. However, just considering efficiency levels is not enough; you also want to consider the refrigerant used in your cooling system. A 40 percent decrease in the amount of refrigerant in new 13 SEER units is substantial, and Bryant uses chlorine-free, non-ozone-depleting Puron® refrigerant in most of its cooling systems to ensure that refrigerant availability and environmental responsibility extend well into the future.
