Why Getting a New Air Conditioner Can Decrease Your Cooling Expenses

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

The solution to lowering your ongoing costs might be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a large upfront investment. At this point in time, there new solutions available that make installing a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner in your home faster than ever. 

We’ll explain more about this possibility in just a bit. But one thing is certain, a a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner can give substantial energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to consider as you investigate air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Beneficial

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

As of 2015, your new air conditioning installation should 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 smallest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners for sale today rank near 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator shows that enhancing your 10 SEER system to a mid-range 16 SEER model could save you 38% on your cooling costs each year! 

Why Calculating Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Critical

Sizing your air conditioning accurately is also crucial if you want to decrease your monthly air conditioning expenses. 

Air conditioning is measured in “tons.” Sizing is critical because an air conditioner that’s too big or tiny can’t keep your loved ones pleasant. 

An air conditioner that’s too massive will often short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity properly. One that’s too little won’t be able to keep up with demand on muggy days. Both problems will you’re your home unpleasant, increase hard wear on your air conditioner and might drive up your utility expenses.

Additional Methods to Enhance Your Home’s Efficiency

The final method to ensure monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to boost your house’s attic insulation. Only about 10% of homes in the U.S. have proper attic insulation, according to study performed by Boston University. Having the correct amount of insulation may help keep your heating and cooling expenses low and keep your residence more pleasant year-round. 

We also advise sealing any air leaks in your residence before we carry out an AC sizing calculation. A tighter, more insulated residence might need a smaller system, saving you on your upfront investment and likely lowering your utility bills for years to come.
