Lastly, Marcus Hiles advocates that home buyers and apartment renters locate properties that have central air conditioners with a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 16 or above. Although the Department of Energy requires the newest air conditioners to have a 13 to 14 SEER rating – depending on the type of system – the higher the number, the better. “Compared to a 15-year-old home or apartment with a 10 SEER unit, this will cut your air conditioning bill by 60 percent,” he notes. Hiles’ Western Rim Properties is a leader in air conditioner efficiency, delivering more than $424,000 in energy savings to community members each year. “In five years, they’ll have collectively saved over $6 million,” he marvels. “Plus, over the next decade, we’ll lesson carbon dioxide emissions by 327,000 tons.”
