Why Installing a New Air Conditioner Can Lower Your Utility Bills

In many areas of of North America, central air conditioning is vital to guarantee your comfort during the sweltering 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 sizeable upfront investment. At this point in time, 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 a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide substantial energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to think over as you research air conditioning replacement in Gaithersburg. 

Why a Bigger SEER Rating is Worth It

Every air conditioner gets a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which grades how efficiently it transforms 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 live 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 improving your 10 SEER system to a mid-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your electrical costs annually! 

Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your cooling system 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 frequently short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity correctly. One that’s too little will lag behind demand on warm days. Both problems will you’re your home unpleasant, increase use of on your air conditioner and may increase your electric costs.

Other Methods to Enhance Your Residence’s Efficiency

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

In addition, we suggest securing any air leaks in your home before we do an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated home might need a smaller system, saving you on your starting investment and likely lowering your electric costs in the future.
