Did you know that in 2023 the price of all heating and air conditioning units and parts will increase? This increase is due to the modern regulations that the new administration has sited on heating and air conditioning manufacturers.
In an effort to help the environment, the administration passed a bill that has increased the SEER rating for all modern heating and air conditioning units, as of now the rating is 14, however it will be increased to 15 soon.
This means that the heating and air conditioning manufacturers will need to adjust their prototype and that will incur more cost for them, but of course that cost will be passed down to the heating and air conditioning provider and then ultimately to the consumer. Although the modern heating and air conditioning units will be more pricey, the good news is that they will conserve energy as well as save homeowners money on their utility bills. Additionally, the more efficient units will create more comfort indoors and it will also create less pollution for the environment! This modern policy only applies for newly bought heating and air conditioning units, and if a homeowner has an older unit they do not need to replace the unit. But, as the older units are phased out, it will become taxing to find parts for them. This means that repairs can be delayed due to shortage of parts to repair older units. However, homeowners are not required to replace their older units, but eventually they will have no choice because of the modern policy. My heating and air conditioning device is only six years old, and I am hoping that I won’t have to replace it for another seven or more years.
