The solution to reducing your annual costs 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 an up-to-date, 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 modern, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide substantial energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to think over as you investigate air conditioning replacement in Albany. 

Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile

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

For comparison, the lowest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners for sale today are near 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator indicates that upgrading your 10 SEER equipment to a mid-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs annually! 

Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Critical

Sizing your air conditioning properly is also essential if you want to lower your monthly air conditioning bills. 

Air conditioners are calculated in “tons.” Sizing is crucial because an air conditioner that’s too massive or tiny can’t keep your house comfy. 

An air conditioner that’s too massive will frequently short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity correctly. One that’s too tiny 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 electric 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 homes in the U.S. have adequate 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 comfy all year. 

In addition, we advise securing 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 initial investment and likely lowering your utility costs in the future.
