Why Getting a New Air Conditioner Can Decrease Your Energy Bills

In many areas of of North America, central air conditioning is important to ensure your comfort during the hot summer months. Unfortunately, cooling is usually the largest expense on your monthly energy bills. 

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

We’ll give you more details about this possibility in just a bit. But one thing is true, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide sizeable energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to consider as you check out air conditioning replacement in San Antonio. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile

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

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

For contrast, the minimum standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners for sale today are near 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator indicates that enhancing your 10 SEER system to a mid-range 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs annually! 

Why Calculating Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your air conditioning properly is also essential if you hope to reduce your monthly air conditioning costs. 

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

An air conditioner that’s too large will frequently short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity correctly. One that’s too tiny will fall behind with demand on warm days. Both troubles will you’re your home unpleasant, increase wear and tear on your air conditioner and may enlarge your electrical costs.

More Approaches to Enhance Your Home’s Efficiency

The final method to verify monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to enhance your home’s attic insulation. Just 10% of homes in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study performed by Boston University. Having the right amount of insulation might help keep your heating and cooling costs low and keep your home more comfortable year-round. 

In addition, we suggest closing any air leaks in your home before we carry out an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated home might need a smaller model, saving you on your initial investment and likely lowering your cooling costs in the future.
