Marcus Hiles Advises On Cutting Home Energy Costs

Decreasing energy costs is on the minds of many homebuyers and prospective renters, and developer Marcus Hiles suggests locating properties with central air conditioners that have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 16 or above. The Department of Energy requires the newest air conditioners to have a 13 to 14 SEER rating (depending on the type of system) but for residents, the higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit. “Compared to a 15-year-old home or apartment with a 10 SEER unit, this will cut your air conditioning bill by 60 percent,” Hiles notes. Western Rim Property Services, which he founded in 1990, has been a consistent leader in air conditioner efficiency and delivers more than $424,000 in energy savings to their community members per year. ““In five years, they’ll have collectively saved over $6 million.
