Are you searching online for a new air conditioner? Do you want a MrCool 13 SEER air conditioner? You better act right now, because when they’re gone they’re gone.
It’s not that we want to stop manufacturing them. The MrCool 13 SEER air conditioner is a great system. We love it. As always, blame ‘the guv’mint.’
The Feds Hate the MrCool 13 SEER Air Conditioner
Okay, not really. No one in the U.S. government holds any particular ill will towards MrCool or any of our products. Not unless you count that guy in DARPA who I still owe $40. You’ll get it, Dave. Stop texting me!
So, if we like our 13 SEER so much, why are we ending the product line? We have to. Us and every other air conditioner manufacturer. 13 SEER was the government residential minimum standard for years, but that standard has changed.
The New Federal Standard
As of January 1st, 2015, we here in the United States of America have new efficiency standards. 14 SEER is now the minimum you can legally manufacture for packaged and split system air conditioners or heat pumps for most of the United States. There are a few places where you can still use 13 SEER split systems A/C, but that market is extremely limited. 14 SEER is mandated for the major markets, so it might as well be nationwide.
What does that meant for you and me? It means that if you want to buy a MrCool 13 SEER air conditioner, you had better get to it and quick. We still have some in stock, but when they’re gone, that’s it. We won’t be building any new 13 SEER units. Maybe they’ll be a collector’s item someday.
Probably not, but here’s hoping!
