What is the most energy efficient air conditioner?

After more than 30 years of successful AC repairs and installations, we’ve learned what matters most to our customers at Sunset Air. They want reliable air conditioning at a competitive price, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing their installation and maintenance are performed correctly, every time.

When it comes to selecting an air conditioning unit, most customers want more product for less money, and in an era of exciting new technology and ever-increasing energy costs, the key to a happy customer comes down to one word: efficiency.

New models are all about energy efficiency, which means saving money on monthly utility bills. Energy-efficient AC units are measured using an important acronym: SEER. It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and it measures how much energy a specific AC unit uses to cool your home. That older unit you’ve kept limping along for the last few years probably has a SEER rating of less than 6. Newer models must have a minimum SEER rating of 13.

SEER Ratings and Efficiency

Our 2 top rated models of air conditioners. 

1. Carrier Infinity 21

Every size of the Infinity 21 is Energy Star rated, and with up to 21 SEER, there’s a reason this unit is top-of-the-line. Phenomenally quiet at around just 65 decibels, this is one of the most sound-friendly units available! A limited 10-year warranty wraps up the package, and don’t forget to ask us about available Carrier rebates. We are a certified installer for this brand and proudly stand behind their products.

3. Lennox SL18XCI

An efficiency rating of up to 18.5 SEER and an Energy Star rating are great indicators, and this Lennox model is also quiet, reliable, and nicely ties in with the Lennox iComfort thermostat. We like the XC20 as well, which comes with wi-fi control.
