What is the minimum energy efficiency standard for air conditioners in my state?

Due to the increasing amount of energy used by heating and cooling systems, the Department of Energy (DOE) hiked up the minimum efficiency levels for air conditioners, heat pumps and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2015. These levels are determined regionally and carry varying requirements based on your location. Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC can answer any questions you may have regarding these minimum requirements and let you know what choices are available when you’re searching for a replacement system.
