Why Installing a New Air Conditioner Can Lower Your Utility Costs

In many locations in of North America, central air conditioning is crucial to insure your comfort during the humid summer months. Unfortunately, cooling is usually the highest 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. Today, 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 think about as you investigate air conditioning replacement in Champaign. 

Why a Bigger SEER Rating is Beneficial

Every air conditioner gets a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which grades how efficiently it turns electricity into cooling. Bigger 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. 

To compare, the smallest 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-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs annually! 

Why Figuring Out Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Important

Sizing your air conditioning properly is also essential if you want to decrease 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 frequently short cycle, which means it will struggle to remove humidity correctly. One that’s too little will fall behind with demand on warm days. Both problems will you’re your home unpleasant, increase wear and tear on your air conditioner and may drive up your cooling costs.

More Methods to Enhance Your Residence’s Efficiency

The final method to verify monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to increase your house’s attic insulation. Just 10% of houses in the U.S. have proper 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 pleasant year-round. 

In addition, we advise closing any air leaks in your house before we do an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated house might need a smaller system, saving you on your upfront investment and likely lowering your cooling costs in the future.
