We hear so much talk about inflation and price increases, and it's usually easy to tune out. But if you think you might be in the market for a new AC system before the end of the year, you'll want to look sooner rather than later. Prices for new air conditioners will increase substantially on the first day of 2023 – and the main reason is NOT inflation.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, as measured by the U.S. Department Of Energy. It measures how much energy a system requires to produce cooling. The higher the SEER number, the less electricity an AC unit uses.
What’s different: Testing conditions were updated to more accurately reflect how equipment performs in the field instead of in laboratories. Current SEER testing does not accurately consider how ductwork affects results, for example.
Why it matters: Prices will increase substantially because manufacturers are redesigning HVAC system components to meet the new requirements before the end of the year.
Legal compliance: There are no compliance requirements for consumers, but manufacturers, dealers, and contractors must follow the new standards or face legal penalties.
A window of opportunity: If your current equipment is running well, you needn’t take any action. But if your AC is struggling or is getting more expensive to maintain, now is the time to act.
Financing: We offer financing – you have a range of financing plans, whether you want to pay off fast or keep monthly payments low over a longer period.
What they’re saying: "I had a new install in the spring through Clark this spring- with quotes from 3 different companies, Clark was the most reasonably priced. They have since been out for routine maintenance for the warranty - all of which has been free (for the first year). The tech is informative, professional, and personable. We will recommend Clark Heating and Cooling to all of our family and friends for their HVAC needs."
