Why Replacing Your Air Conditioner Can Lower Your Energy Bills

In many parts of North America, central air conditioning is essential to insure your family’s comfort during the hot summer months. Unfortunately, air conditioning may be the highest expense on your monthly utility bills.

The solution to reducing your ongoing expenses might be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a big upfront investment. Today, there new options available that make installing a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner in your house faster than ever.

We’ll explain more about this possibility in just a bit. But one thing is correct, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide considerable lifetime energy savings. Here’s what to think about as you check out air conditioning replacement in Winnipeg.

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worth It

Every air conditioner receives a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which measures how efficiently it transforms electricity into cooling. Greater SEER ratings mean your AC is more energy efficient.

As of 2015, your new air conditioning installation must be 13 SEER or greater in Canada and the northern United States. If you live in the South, your new air conditioner must be at a baseline of 14 SEER.

For comparison, the minimum standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and the most high-end air conditioners available today are around 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator demonstrates that improving your 10 SEER system to a mid-grade 16 SEER air conditioner could save you 38% on your cooling bills every year!

Why Figuring Out Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Critical

Sizing your air conditioning correctly is also crucial if you want to decrease your monthly air conditioning expenses.

Cooling systems are measured in “tons.” Sizing is important because an air conditioner that’s too big or tiny can’t keep your loved ones pleasant.

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 lag behind demand on warm days. Both troubles will lead to your home being too hot, increase hard wear on your air conditioner and may increase your energy bill.

Additional Approaches to Enhance Your House’s Efficiency

The final approach to confirm monthly savings when you replace your air conditioner is to enhance your home’s attic insulation. Only about 10% of homes in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study conducted by Boston University. Having the correct level of insulation can help keep your heating and cooling bills low and keep your residence more comfy regardless of temperatures outside.

We also recommend sealing any air leaks in your residence before we do an AC sizing calculation. A tighter, more insulated residence may need a smaller model, saving you on your upfront investment and likely reducing your electric expenses for years to come.
