It pays you cash when you make energy-sawng improvements recommended by OG&E's energy au ht of your home. Well, d your aucht recommends a new, more energy efhcmnt central air condihoner, select the most energy- saving unit you can afford. [ ook for the Energy Grade Label tha~ bows that umt's SEER number (Sc~ real Energy Efhcmncy Ratio). The hlgh:~r the SEER number, the more efficiently that unit uses electnclty. Here's an example. In a typical summer season, a new 3 ton 10 SEER mr conditioner w),ll cost you about $87 less in energy than an old 7 SEER umt. What's more, OG&E's AWARD program would pay you $308 cash for sawng 1.54 kilowatts. That's a total of $395 saved for buying a hlghefflclency central air conditioner. That's }ust an example, but you get the point. Buy the air condmoner w~th the highest SEER number you can. It might cost a httle more, but OG&E's AWARD program can help pay mm for It.
