An Efficient Refrigerant Choice for Modern AC Systems
Today's residential air conditioning (AC) systems are expected to be energy efficient and compatible with smart technology. The most effective systems create synergy to improve home comfort and reduce energy consumption.
Modern AC systems are designed to keep temperatures comfortable while using less electricity than older systems to maintain comparable cooling capacity. The technology that facilitates their efficiency includes:
- Smart thermostats
- Zone systems with separate climate controls
- Variable-speed AC systems that adjust a home's airflow
