Why Installing a New Air Conditioner Can Decrease Your Electricity Costs

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

The solution to reducing your long-term expenses 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 modern, high-efficiency air conditioner in your house simpler than ever. 

We’ll give you more details about this possibility 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 consider as you check out air conditioning replacement in Waukegan. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile

Every air conditioner gets a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which grades how efficiently it turns electricity into 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 better in Canada and the northern United States. If you are the South, your new air conditioner has to be at minimum 14 SEER. 

To compare, the smallest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners for sale today are around 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator indicates that enhancing your 10 SEER air conditioner to a mid-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs annually! 

Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your air conditioning properly is also essential if you want 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 little can’t keep your house comfy. 

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

More Approaches to Enhance Your Home’s Efficiency

The final method to confirm monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to boost your home’s attic insulation. Just 10% of houses in the U.S. have enough attic insulation, according to study performed by Boston University. Having the right depth of insulation might help keep your heating and cooling costs low and keep your house more comfortable all year. 

In addition, we suggest closing any air leaks in your house before we do an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated house may need a smaller model, saving you on your upfront investment and likely lowering your electric costs later on.
