In many areas of of North America, central air conditioning is essential to guarantee your family’s comfort during the sweltering summer months. Unfortunately, using your air conditioner may be the largest expense on your monthly energy bills.
The solution to reducing your ongoing expenses could be to buy a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. In the past, this required a sizeable upfront investment. Now, there new alternatives available that make buying an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner in your home faster than ever.
We’ll explain more about this option in just a bit. But one thing is right, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can deliver considerable energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to consider as you explore air conditioning replacement in Denver.
Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worth It
Every air conditioner gets a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which tests how efficiently it transforms electricity into cooling. Greater 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 is required to be at least 14 SEER.
For comparison, the minimum standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and top-of-the-line air conditioners on the market today reach around 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator shows that upgrading your 10 SEER system to a mid-range 16 SEER model could save you 38% on your electrical bills every year!
Why Figuring Out Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Important
Sizing your cooling system correctly is also essential if you want to reduce your monthly electrical bills.
Air conditioners are calculated in “tons.” Sizing is important because an air conditioner that’s too large or tiny can’t keep your residence pleasant.
An air conditioner that’s too large will often short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity properly. One that’s too small won’t be able to keep up with demand on warm days. Both issues will lead to your home being too humid, increase hard wear on your air conditioner and might increase your electrical expenses.

Additional Approaches to Enhance Your Residence’s Efficiency
The final method to confirm monthly savings when you replace your air conditioner is to increase your house’s attic insulation. Merely 10% of houses in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study conducted by Boston University. Having the proper level of insulation may help keep your utility costs down and keep your house more comfortable throughout the year.
We also recommend closing any air leaks in your home before we perform an AC sizing calculation. A tighter, more insulated house may call for a smaller model, saving you on your upfront investment and possibly reducing your electrical expenses down the road.
