HVAC Efficiency Standards Are Changing in 2023

HVAC Efficiency Standards Are Changing

What is it they say about change? It's inevitable. Even in the world of HVAC.

There are some major changes on the way for 2023, which means we need to start preparing now in order to make sure we have high-quality air to breathe at home, at the office, and in all indoor spaces where people gather to live, work, and play.

The biggest change has to do with new seasonal energy efficiency ratio 2 regulations (known as SEER2), which state that:

  • Residential central air systems below 45,000 Btu must have a SEER2 rating of 14.3 (15.0 SEER).
  • Residential central air systems 45,000 Btu and above must have a SEER2 rating of 13.8 (14.5 SEER).

All HVAC systems purchased in the southeast region that do not meet the SEER2 requirements cannot be installed after January 1, 2023.

The new regulations represent a step toward a more sustainable future. What they mean for us here at Reliable Heating & Air is that our base home model that we currently sell will no longer be available next year. It also means that now is an excellent time to consider your HVAC system and whether it needs to be replaced or upgraded.

If you're on the fence, consider that upgrading now can lead to major savings in the long run. A high-efficiency air conditioner uses less power than older models, which means lower energy bills for you every single month. Cosider the fact that if your current system is more than 10 years old then you can likely expect your monthly heating & cooling cost to decrease by up to 40%.

Check out our Seer Savings Calculator to see how much you could save in electricity every single year, as well as how much accumulated savings you'll have 5, 10, and 15 years down the road.

Getting ahead of change

We said it before and we'll say it again: change is inevitable. But if we plan for it, we can make it work for us. Take this opportunity to set yourself up for a beautiful spring and beyond with our Spring Clean offer.
