Air conditioners are typically one of those things we now take for granted. Once considered a luxury, air conditioning has now become a necessity for most people. Air conditioners like most things have made major changes in the last few years. Among them being newer, more environmentally friendly refrigerant units (R410a) with much higher efficiencies from 13-SEER to 25-SEER. (SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher the SEER, the less energy it consumes and the less it costs to operate.) There are single, two stage and variable speed outdoor units. Two stage units can operate at two different capacities to handle the different changes from warm days to those hot dog days in summer or the changes from a warm morning or evening to a hot mid-day. Two stage units are also better at humidity removal which is a big part of air conditioning. Varaiable speed units can run at any level needed to properly cool your home whatever the outdoor conditions. If you can lower the humidity to more acceptable levels, you will be much more comfortable.
