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

Due to the high amount of energy used by heating and cooling systems, the Department of Energy (DOE) raised 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. O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding these minimum requirements and let you know what choices are available when you’re in the market for a replacement system.
