Installing a high SEER heat pump / air conditioner, will save energy - The challenge is to make sure it is installed correctly and does not become a maintenance trap as all the savings in energy can be lost on maintenance. We take no short cuts when installing these systems and are having great success for our customers. When no gas is available, these systems can be used in conjunction with an older oil heating appliance for emergency heat. The cost of air conditioning can be high, so these High SEER systems lower that cost over most existing low SEER systems. The use of variable speed air handlers in combination with the higher SEER air conditioners and heat pumps will also decrease the energy usage as well as provide better comfort with greater dehumidification.
