New efficiency requirements set by the Department of Energy are being instilled effective January 1st. This means a 20-30% increase in prices industry wide for all components of your air conditioning system. Increased restrictions means that an industry that is already struggling with supply chain issues could find it even more difficult to stock parts and systems that meet the updated requirements.

If your AC system needs to be replaced, now would be a great time to do so before the industry gets hit with all of these additional restrictions. With the price of energy increasing so drastically, in many cases the monthly cost of a new, more efficient unit could be offset by your energy savings. If you are on the fence, now is the time to act to avoid the price increases and chaos that the new restrictions will bring.

Don’t wait any longer to fix your AC, it could cost you 20-30% more due to the new Government Regulations if you don’t act now. They are cracking down on energy efficient systems. Fixing old units won’t be aloud after this January do to these new restrictions. There will be a gold rush on trying to get parts and equipment due to no longer being able to fix these old systems. This could potentially create a supply chain shortage and leave you without a cooling or heating solution for weeks.
