Earning the ENERGY STAR means products meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency. By choosing ENERGY STAR qualified heating and cooling equipment and taking steps to optimize its performance, you can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change.
ENERGY STAR qualified central air conditioners: have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings, making them about 14% more efficient than standard models.
Tips on energy savings
Ducts - Keep air supply registers and vents clear to allow air to flow freely throughout the room. Do not block the return air registers. Each home has its very own air register distribution, locate these registers in your home and keep furniture away from blocking the vents air flow.
Closing air supply vents to a room
When you close vents of your air conditioning system you could also throw off the balance of the system, change the way air is distributed, a properly installed air ducts systems are designed to a specific volume of air flow by blocking an air vent will cause a back presure resulting in additional air flow to other rooms, may cause sweating of the duct work or cause the thermostat to detect temperatures which make the rest of the house uncomfortable.
Note: If Air flow is very weak and is not cooling your room consider contacting Penguin Air, to have one of our technicians inspect your ducts and system distribution
A programmable thermostat helps make it easy for you to save by offering four pre-programmed settings to regulate your home's temperature in both summer and winter - when you are home, asleep, or away.

About New Air Conditioning System -
ENERGY STAR qualified central air conditioners: have higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER) ratings, making them about 14% more efficient than standard models. The central air conditioner also needs a blower motor – which is usually part of the air handler– to blow the cool air through the duct system. The only way to ensure that your new air conditioner performs at its rated efficiency is to replace your heating system at the same time. It’s especially recommended if your furnace is over 15 years old. If you purchase a new energy-efficient air conditioner but connect it to an older furnace and blower motor, your system will not perform to its rated efficiency.
Media Filters combined with Ultraviolet light
UltraViolet Sterilizers, often referred to as UV air purifiers, are used with standard air handlers filters to kill bacteria in the air. These units are mounted in your duct system and kill bacteria as they pass through the light emitted from purifier. It’s important that this equipment be installed correctly for maximum safety and efficiency. These air purifiers provides an extra level of air treatment to improve indoor air quality.
