2023 Regulation Changes


Public Service Announcement

Please take a minute to read this, we can help save you money!

On January 1, 2023, the Department of Energy minimum efficiency standards are changing for the first time since 2015.

Two significant changes will affect heat pumps and central air conditioners beginning in 2023. Sunny Service is here to help you navigate those changes. Our qualified technicians have your back whether you need equipment, maintenance, repairs, replacement, or installation. We offer solutions tailored to your unique comfort and budget needs.

Government Efficiency Regulations Changing

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will raise the minimum efficiency standards for residential heat pumps and central air conditioners starting next year. Systems installed in the U.S. beginning Jan. 1, 2023, MUST meet those minimum standards.

The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) describes cooling system efficiency, similar to miles per gallon on a car. With SEER, the higher the number, the more efficient the unit is.

Currently, the minimum is 14 SEER for AC equipment.

Next year the minimum standard goes to 15 SEER AND they are changing the rating scale to SEER2 which means tougher standards, new equipment and certification/re-certification.

What Does This Mean For You, the Homeowner?

  • 15-25% Price Increase on ALL equipment effective January 1, 2023. Manufacturers have already issued updates to prepare our industry
  • Larger outdoor equipment (this is how they drive more efficiency) – these use more materials, take up more room in production and on shipping trucks which adds to cost.
  • Equipment shortages as they change production lines, recertify equipment, etc.
  • More efficient equipment saves on utility bills (this is a good thing)

How Can You Save Money?

  • If you think AC/Heating equipment replacement is an investment you will need to make in the next few years, now is the time!
  • We still have equipment available, but manufacturer phase-out has started.
  • A new system will save you money on already rising utility bills (even the base models are likely more efficient than what in your home today). We guarantee 10%, 20% or 30% electricity usage reduction depending on the system that fits your needs best.
