Get a $150 rebate toward your new A/C unit
Hi Deborah, deciding whether or not to replace your existing 15-year-old A/C unit is a big decision and large investment. The good news is – should you choose to purchase a new unit you could be looking at lower energy bills once you’ve installed a more efficient system. For example, if you replace a 10 SEER three-ton A/C unit with a 16 SEER system, you could save around $377 annually.
Qualify for a $150 rebate
If you purchase and install a 16 or 17 SEER, straight cool/air cool unit in a single-family detached home from a Participating Independent Contractor you’ll qualify for a $150 rebate from FPL. These contractors can also help you find the right unit for your home and ensure you’re eligible for rebates.
What is SEER?
As you may already know, SEER is a measure of a system’s efficiency – it stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio – an important consideration when your air conditioning can account for more than 50 percent of your energy bill during peak cooling months.
Current Florida regulations require a minimum SEER level of 14 for new A/C units. As you might guess, the higher the SEER level the more expensive the unit. However, it also means you’re getting a more efficient unit, and the savings generated are greater. Ultimately, the ideal balance for your home will depend on the size and layout of your home, where it’s located, and how often you run your air conditioning.
