Why Replacing Your Air Conditioner Can Decrease Your Cooling Expenses

In many locations in of North America, central air conditioning is essential to ensure your loved ones’ comfort during the sweltering summer months. Unfortunately, cooling is typically the largest expense on your monthly utility bills. 

The key to reducing your long-term costs may be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. In the past, this required a large upfront investment. Now, there new alternatives available that make getting a new, high-efficiency air conditioner in your residence easier than ever. 

We’ll give you more information about this possibility in a little bit. But one thing is true, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can deliver sizeable lifetime energy savings. Here’s what to think over as you check out air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. 

Why a Greater SEER Rating is Beneficial

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

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

For contrast, the minimum standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and top-of-the-line air conditioners available today reach near 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator shows that enhancing your 10 SEER equipment to a mid-priced 16 SEER model could save you 38% on your utility bills annually! 

Why Figuring Out Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your air conditioner correctly is also critical if you hope to reduce your monthly cooling bills. 

Air conditioning is calculated in “tons.” Sizing is important because an air conditioner that’s too big or small can’t keep your residence pleasant. 

An air conditioner that’s too large will commonly short cycle, which means it will struggle to remove humidity accurately. One that’s too small will fall behind with demand on hot days. Both problems will lead to your home being too hot, increase wear and tear on your air conditioner and may enlarge your energy bill.

Other Approaches to Improve Your House’s Efficiency

The final approach to ensure monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to enhance your residence’s attic insulation. Just 10% of houses in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study completed by Boston University. Having the right depth of insulation could help keep your heating and cooling bills lower and keep your residence more comfy all year. 

We also suggest sealing any air leaks in your house before we perform an AC sizing calculation. A more leakproof, more insulated house might need a smaller model, saving you on your upfront investment and potentially lowering your electrical costs in the future.
