2023 has New Energy Efficiency Standards

Starting January 1st, 2023, new SEER2 product regulations will be in full effect nationwide. True Temp will help you better understand the new energy standards and make the transition seamlessly.

In efforts to make this transition, True Temp is working closely with our local suppliers to verify equipment availability and stocking new Seer2 units as they come available.

This may not be a new concept to the DOE, Department of Energy but for the homeowner it can be concerning. This change occurs every six years with the Department of Energy. As the department reviews energy efficiency and energy effects and systems are tested.  with the newly established minimum energy efficiency requirements being said, new SEER ratings will take place making them SEER2.  You may have already researched the DOE has changed the testing procedure used to rate the efficiency of HVAC equipment to be more accurate of today’s equipment installations.  Now all new equipment will be rated SEER2.

What does SEER2 mean and how does it affect me?

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.  This is a measure of the cooling efficiency of your home/office air conditioning system.  Typically, a higher SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit will be. We always take the SEER rating into consideration when replacing a customer’s existing air conditioning system.  Our area, here in the Southeast of Florida will be required as of January 1, 2023 to have a SEER2 system installed when replacing the existing A/C system.  Let’s keep in mind that these new units will start to phase out older systems and as inventory becomes less and less available, we will do our best to offer options for repairs, keeping in mind cost effective options for replacement.   

Can True Temp help me?

Let us help you get the right new air conditioning unit installed in your home or office today. When comparing options on new equipment we suggest paying close attention to the SEER2 vs SEER rating.  The SEER2 label will indicate that it is the most up to date with the new energy standards for 2023.  Older equipment will still show SEER on the energy efficiency label but keep in mind these are no longer being manufactured.  Contact True Temp to schedule your free in home estimate on replacing your existing unit with the new up to date standards and energy efficient units.
