Why Getting a New Air Conditioner Can Decrease Your Electricity Expenses

In many locations in of North America, central air conditioning is important to guarantee your comfort during the humid summer months. Unfortunately, cooling is usually the biggest expense on your monthly energy bills. 

The solution to reducing your ongoing charges may be to get a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. In the past, this required a big upfront investment. Now, there new solutions available that make getting a new, high-efficiency air conditioner in your house simpler than ever. 

We’ll give you more details about this solution in just a bit. But one thing is true, a a new, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide considerable energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to think about as you explore air conditioning replacement in Rochester. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile

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

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

For comparison, the lowest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners for sale today are approximately 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator indicates that improving your 10 SEER equipment to a mid-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your air conditioning costs annually! 

Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your cooling system properly is also essential if you want to reduce your monthly air conditioning bills. 

Air conditioners are calculated in “tons.” Sizing is crucial because an air conditioner that’s too large or small can’t keep your house comfy. 

An air conditioner that’s too large will frequently short cycle, which means it will have a hard time removing humidity correctly. One that’s too small won’t be able to keep up with demand on warm days. Both issues will you’re your home unpleasant, increase use of on your air conditioner and may drive up your cooling costs.

Other Methods to Enhance Your Home’s Efficiency

The final method to verify monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to boost your house’s attic insulation. Merely 10% of homes in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study performed by Boston University. Having the proper level of insulation might help keep your heating and cooling costs low and keep your house more comfy all year. 

We also recommend closing any air leaks in your house before we perform an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated house might need a smaller model, saving you on your starting investment and likely lowering your electrical costs for years to come.
