The Performance Plus™ 13-SEER split system air conditioner meets the requirements for the Energy Star™ program, which allows contractors in parts of the country to offer consumer rebates on air conditioning units rated 13 SEER and above, states the manufacturer. It can cut energy usage by as much as 55% compared to 10-years-old or older air conditioners, the company says. Offering 18 MBtuh to 60 MBtuh, depending on which indoor unit is paired with it, the unit has room for more coil surface, allowing for better heat transfer, increased energy efficiency, and in the end, lower cooling costs, says the company.
