How Much Can You Save by Upgrading Your Air Conditioning System?
The amount of energy and money you can save by upgrading to an air conditioner with a higher SEER rating depends on the SEER rating of your current system. When you’re choosing a new air conditioner, you’ll want to factor in the amount of money you can save over the lifetime of the unit before making a decision based on price alone.
There are various SEER rating calculators on the Internet (like this one) that will allow you to see how much money you can save based on the SEER rating of your current unit. For example, if you have an air conditioner with a SEER rating of 10 (the federal minimum until 2006) and you upgrade to a unit with a SEER rating of 13 (the current federal minimum), you can save approximately $1,125 in operating costs over the lifetime of your new system. Obviously, the savings will go up as the SEER rating of your new unit increases.
How Efficient Thinking Adds Up to Big Savings
Did you know that heating and cooling usage typically adds up to over half a typical home's utility bill? If you are trying to cut back on energy usage and costs, your HVAC system is the place to start. Having a high-efficiency system in place is one of the best ways to capitalize on savings. You can determine if your heating / cooling system is efficient by looking at the EnergyGuide label, which will display the product's efficiency rating.

Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.

Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
