ENERGY STAR® qualified room air conditioners are more energy efficient because they use better compressors, fan motors and improved heat transfer surfaces. As a result, today's ENERGY STAR® qualified room air conditioners offer a quieter, more efficient way to cool your home or office.
Save Money and Energy with Energy Efficient Room Air Conditioners
The most important feature when purchasing a room air conditioner is size. To effectively cool and save the most energy and money on your cooling needs, it is important to choose the correct size of air conditioner for your room. Oversized units decrease the efficiency of your air conditioner and waste energy by cooling the room quickly but not removing enough humidity. An air conditioner that is too small for the room will have to work too hard to cool the space effectively. Purchasing an air conditioning unit of the correct size will efficiently cool the air and remove the proper amount of humidity.
In order to be ENERGY STAR® qualified, room air conditioners must exceed federal efficiency standards by ten percent or more.
