Why Getting a New Air Conditioner Can Reduce Your Cooling Costs

In many locations in of North America, central air conditioning is critical to guarantee your loved ones’ comfort during the sweltering summer months. Unfortunately, using your air conditioner is usually the largest expense on your monthly electricity bills. 

The solution to reducing your long-term costs may be to buy a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a sizeable upfront investment. Today, there new solutions available that make getting a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner in your residence faster than ever. 

We’ll give you more details about this solution in a little bit. But one thing is true, a a new, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide considerable lifetime energy savings. Here’s what to think over as you check out air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worth It

Every air conditioner receives a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which tests how efficiently it uses electricity for cooling. Bigger SEER ratings mean an air conditioner is more energy efficient. 

As of 2015, your new air conditioning installation must be 13 SEER or greater in Canada and the northern United States. If you reside in the South, your new air conditioner must be at least 14 SEER. 

For contrast, the lowest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners available today rank near 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator demonstrates that upgrading your 10 SEER system to a mid-priced 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs per year! 

Why Calculating Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Critical

Sizing your air conditioner correctly is also crucial if you hope to decrease your monthly electrical costs. 

Air conditioners are measured in “tons.” Sizing is critical because an air conditioner that’s too massive or small can’t keep your loved ones pleasant. 

An air conditioner that’s too massive will often short cycle, which means it will have a hard time removing humidity properly. One that’s too small won’t be able to keep up with demand on muggy days. Both problems will you’re your home uncomfortable, increase use of on your air conditioner and could increase your electric costs.

More Approaches to Increase Your House’s Efficiency

The final approach to verify monthly savings when you install a new air conditioner is to enhance your residence’s attic insulation. Just 10% of houses in the U.S. have enough attic insulation, according to study completed by Boston University. Having the correct level of insulation may help keep your energy expenses down and keep your house more comfortable no matter the weather. 

We also recommend sealing any air leaks in your residence before we do an AC sizing calculation. A more leakproof, more insulated residence could need a smaller model, saving you on your starting investment and likely lowering your electrical costs in the future.
