Why Installing a New Air Conditioner Can Lower Your Energy Expenses

In many areas of of North America, central air conditioning is critical to insure your loved ones’ comfort during the humid summer months. Unfortunately, using your air conditioner is usually the highest expense on your monthly energy bills. 

The secret to decreasing your ongoing expenses may be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a big upfront investment. At this point in time, there new solutions available that make buying an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner in your house faster than ever. 

We’ll give you more information about this option in a moment. But one thing is right, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can deliver sizeable energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to think over as you explore air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile

Every air conditioner gets a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which measures how efficiently it turns electricity into cooling. Greater SEER ratings mean a system 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 are the South, your new air conditioner must be at minimum 14 SEER. 

For comparison, the minimum standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and top-of-the-line air conditioners for sale today reach approximately 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator demonstrates that improving your 10 SEER air conditioner to a mid-priced 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your electrical bills annually! 

Why Calculating Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your cooling system properly is also essential if you hope to reduce your monthly electrical bills. 

Air conditioning is measured in “tons.” Sizing is important because an air conditioner that’s too massive or little can’t keep your residence comfortable. 

An air conditioner that’s too big will often short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity correctly. One that’s too tiny will lag behind demand on muggy days. Both problems will you’re your home sticky, increase wear and tear on your air conditioner and may increase your utility expenses.

Other Approaches to Improve Your Home’s Efficiency

The final way to ensure monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to enhance your residence’s attic insulation. Merely 10% of residences in the U.S. have enough attic insulation, according to study completed by Boston University. Having the right level of insulation could help keep your energy costs low and keep your home more pleasant year-round. 

We also advise closing any air leaks in your residence before we do an AC sizing calculation. A more leakproof, more insulated home could need a smaller air conditioner, saving you on your starting investment and possibly reducing your utility costs later on.
