Benefits of High Energy-Efficient Air Conditioning in the Cayman Islands

Ensure High Energy-Efficient Air Conditioners Work Hard in Your Home

Isn’t it a miserable feeling when you enter a room and are surrounded by hot, stuffy air? If there’s one thing we know about ourselves here in Cayman, it’s that we LOVE our AC! AC units are considered a necessity for residential homes and commercial businesses in the Cayman Islands. However, when you live in a climate that requires a powerful cooling system all year long, you can’t help but think of how it will affect your electricity bill at the end of each month. With a high energy-efficient air conditioner, you won’t have to.

What is an Energy-Efficient Air Conditioner?

High energy-efficient air conditioners are technologically adapted to use less energy in cooling your home to the desired, comfortable temperature you’re looking for. When your AC unit is using less energy, it costs you less money. High energy-efficient air conditioners are determined based on their SEER ratings. The higher these ratings, the more efficient your AC unit is. 

What is a Good Seer Rating for an Air Conditioner?

SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. This ratio measures the amount of cool air an air conditioner produces in a regular cooling season, divided by the total energy it consumes. High energy-efficient air conditioners have a high SEER rating because they provide more cool air while using the least amount of energy. Older cooling systems have a SEER rating of less than 10, while basic contemporary AC units have SEER ratings around 14. High energy-efficient air conditioners, on the other hand, have SEER ratings over 20!

Air conditioning systems don’t always operate at their designated SEER rating. It is important to understand that SEER calculates the maximum energy efficiency of an AC unit, but actual energy efficiency depends on a lot of environmental variables. This is very similar to MPG (miles per gallon) in a car. When you buy a fuel-efficient car, its advertised fuel economy could be 35, but actual gas mileage will vary depending on how you’re driving. In a similar manner, an air conditioner’s energy efficiency can vary based on proper AC sizing and installation, regular maintenance, the current ductwork, type of thermostat, functionality of the cooled space, etc. That’s why maintenance is so important for your air conditioning system.

How much can I save with an Energy Efficient AC?

In 2019 Cayman was labelled the most costly place to live on the planet, according to Expatistan. This is no doubt partly due to the high cost of electricity which is around CI 30 cents per kwh, about triple the US average. This explains why high efficiency air conditioners are such a wise and increasingly popular investment option to save money in the long term; especially when you consider your AC can contribute 70% to 80% of your electricity usage in Cayman’s hot and humid climate. 

Lower efficiency AC equipment are considered 14 SEER or below but when this equipment is old, poorly maintained, incorrectly installed and non-programmable the actual performance can be reduced significantly to well below 10 SEER. Uninformed homeowners are enticed by cheaper installation quotes but this is at the expense of hundreds of dollars every month. So how much can you save? Think of your last electricity bill, now half it… That could be your new bill by updating your AC equipment with Polar Bear to over 20 SEER rating. Also, remember regular maintenance and filter changes are important for keeping your unit operating at peak performance, as well as maintaining indoor air quality and preventing early breakdown.

Our wide range of high energy-efficient air conditioners encompass both ductless split and central air systems. If you’re looking to install, repair, or replace your current AC unit for something more efficient, contact us now. We service all areas of Grand Cayman including George Town, West Bay, Patrick’s Island, Cayman Kai, East End, North Side, South Sound and Bodden Town. We also make the occasional trip to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman when demand allows.

I recently had my air conditioning unit installed by Polar Bear Air Conditioning in Cayman Kai. I was very pleased with the service I received. The workmen, Jerome, Tony, and Nathan, were all professional and courteous. They arrived on time and were dressed in their uniforms. They laid out carpeting where they would be walking inside the house to avoid leaving debris or making a mess. They worked clean and kept the space tidy. They were polite and provided me a good understanding of the work they completed as well as showed me all pieces of equipment. They emailed me a jpg image of each piece of equipment's information plate so that I could record it in my home management software, as requested.Here are some specific details about the work they did:They installed 3 new high-efficiency air conditioning units that are much more energy-efficient (26 SEER) than my old units.They cleaned and disinfected the air ducts, as well as replaced previously installed flex ducts with rigid duct work that is superior in efficiency and durability.They installed new filters to help keep the air clean and free of allergens.They explained the operation of the new units to me and answered all of my questions.They cleaned up after themselves and left my home in good condition.I would highly recommend Polar Bear Air Conditioning to anyone in need of air conditioning installation or service. They are a professional and reliable company that provides excellent customer service.

Our ac stopped working a few weeks ago and Polar Bear sent Roemaine and Tyrone to diagnose the problem. Roemaine and Tyrone very quickly identified the problem and communicated with me. It turns out the best option was replacing the condensing unit which Paul quoted within a matter of minutes and they had expert installation team (Tony and Jerome) complete late in the afternoon with short notice. I’m very happy with their work!

I have, over the years been trying to find a reliable, professional A/C maintenance and repair company. I have tried a few. That search is now over after using Polar Bear. Billy and Jerry were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable and professional from the initial diagnosis to the final repair. I highly recommend this company and the team that came to do work on my AC. Tim.

Great work. I received an email and also a call from the dispatcher that the tech would be calling me, and sure enough, the tech (Simon) called shortly after that to let me know he was on his way which was very much appreciated. The customer service from all of the team and updates was spot on, and Simon was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He was also very courteous and professional. I rate Polar Bear as the best company in town. Great work!

Polar Bear's service and response was amazing! Nicole who answered my phone call and scheduled me was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! The Technician assigned to me was Simon and he was also extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Within a minute of looking at my system he knew what the errors and issues were! He was able to fix one of the two problems that day, and then came scheduled and came the following day to fix the remaining issue. He was perfectly on time and the courtesy call before arrival both times before arriving was a welcome touch as it made sure that I was ready.Will continue using polar bear for all my HVAC needs! 5*

My experience with Polar Bear has been awesome!!!! From the beginning, the office staff were so professional and kind, then receiving my AC quote, the gentleman has been very prompt in his response time—, the kind of employee that puts customer first and has such a nice and an approachable attitude, very patient in answering my questions and providing guidance as required by me- customer focus completely, then as if that wasn’t enough to convince me to move my AC maintenance and installation to Polar Bear; the technicians that attended to my AC installation provided such excellent service— what stood out was how they used a carpet that was placed on my floor to avoid making any mess on my floor and whatever mess they did make, the technician used their broom to remove it. I know this message is long but I really wanted to express my THANK YOU and appreciation for such excellent customer service that I’ve experienced by Polar Bear — you have won me as a customer!! THANK YOU! Keep up the excellent customer service!!! Looking forward to building a relationship with you as a new customer.

I am very pleased with the service that was provided by Polar Bear. I had an issue where the ac was not working at one of my rental properties after hours on a weekend. Rohan came all the way out to East End at 10pm and worked on the issue to get the system back up and running. He was very thorough and explained the issue in detail, and the measures I needed to take to prevent it from reoccurring. Excellent customer service
