An energy-efficient air conditioner is essential if you’re to beat the Las Vegas, Nevada, heat. If you haven’t upgraded your cooling system in a decade or more, you’re missing out on many innovative features. From variable-speed technology to smart thermostat compatibility, check out four must-have features you’ll appreciate in today’s air conditioners.

Two-Stage Compressor

When your cooling system switches off, keeping cool isn’t always easy. With a two-stage compressor, however, your air conditioner can switch from high speed to low speed. This capability minimizes temperature swings. At Johnny On The Spot, we carry systems like the two-speed Trane XL18i air conditioner. You can be assured of superior comfort even on summer’s hottest days. This is a must-have feature you’ll love when a heat wave hits our area.

Variable-Speed Technology

Variable-speed technology takes cooling to the next level. This feature allows your cooling system to adjust between several settings. The compressor will change the speed by as little as one-tenth of one percent increments at a time. Trane’s XV20i TruComfort variable speed air conditioner, for example, is an excellent choice. This system keeps you cool no matter how high the outdoor temperature climbs without consuming excess energy.

High SEER Rating

Concerned about decreasing your carbon footprint or reducing your utility bills? You need an air conditioner with a high SEER rating. SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) measures the system’s energy usage over the cooling season. Cooling systems with at least 15 SEER can earn an ENERGY STAR certification. For even higher efficiency, look for an air conditioner like the Trane XV20i which has up to 22 SEER.

Smart Thermostat Compatibility

Your cooling system won’t go very far without an efficient thermostat. We’ll make sure your thermostat and air conditioner are compatible. Smart thermostats can help you manage indoor temperature and humidity, and save energy. Today’s devices with must-have features like Wi-Fi capability and energy reports give your system even more of a high-tech edge.
