Which may then qualify the system for the federal tax credits that are availablt to residential customers. (30% tax credit on the contact price up to $1500.00total tax credit). If the cost of the upgrade is only $1500.00 and the contract price is over $5000.00. You qualify for the entire 30%(or$1500.00). That would make the return on investment immediate and the rest a mute point. You can read more on these tax credits @ energystar.gov
Also needs to have a 12.5 EER to qualify.

why nit pick about 12 seer not being available. It does not change the fact. And you are missing the point -the amount of money that it cost to buy a higher rated unit cannot be recovered- they were still manufactured 5 years ago and I could still buy them up to 2 years ago for my rental.

Are you diametrically opposed to fans. Fans should be used in conjunction with ac. It might just be a case of getting used to a certain temperature. I used to be comfortable at the temp u suggest . At one time i lived in a house with evap and during hi dew point times i was quite uncomfortable. then 85 with ac with fans felt good. therefore if i am comfortable at 85 why set the temperature lower. You save about 1% of your bill for ever degree higher that you set your stat at. btw You should have a fan that brings in the night air and use mother nature to cool your house. I do that but it is a single fan blowing in my bedroom window and is quite comfortable (even have to turn it off some times (2 nights ago i.e.)).

Well. You apparently don't stay up with what is , and is not available.

Your also wrong about not recovering the additional cost.
A 13 SEER can easily be increased to a 14 SEER or better without a lot of additional cost. And return a savings on that investment.

Obviously you don't care what it cost your tenants to cool their places. Your not paying the bill.

Fans don't help much when its 90 outside. And if you have to run fans when its that temp outside, then the A/C isn't sized right.

Ceiling fans are nice, but not the end all to high cooling cost.
