In many areas of of North America, central air conditioning is essential to guarantee your loved ones’ comfort during the sweltering summer months. Unfortunately, cooling may be the largest expense on your monthly energy bills.
The secret to reducing your long-term expenses may be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a sizeable upfront investment. Today, there new alternatives available that make installing an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner in your residence faster than ever.
We’ll explain more about this solution in a moment. But one thing is correct, a a new, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide sizeable energy savings over its lifetime. Here’s what to think about as you explore air conditioning replacement in Fort Worth.
Why a Higher SEER Rating is Worthwhile
Every air conditioner receives a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which measures how efficiently it turns electricity into cooling. Higher SEER ratings mean your AC is more energy efficient.
As of 2015, your new air conditioning installation should be 13 SEER or higher in Canada and the northern United States. If you are the South, your new air conditioner must be at least 14 SEER.
For comparison, the smallest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and the most high-end air conditioners on the market today are around 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator indicates that improving your 10 SEER system to a mid-grade 16 SEER air conditioner could save you 38% on your electrical bills annually!
Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters
Sizing your air conditioner correctly is also essential if you want to reduce your monthly utility expenses.
Cooling systems are measured in “tons.” Sizing is critical because an air conditioner that’s too massive or little can’t keep your family pleasant.
An air conditioner that’s too massive will commonly short cycle, which means it will have a hard time removing humidity correctly. One that’s too tiny will lag behind demand on hot days. Both problems will leave your home too humid, increase hard wear on your air conditioner and may increase your electric expenses.

Additional Ways to Improve Your Home’s Efficiency
The final approach to confirm monthly savings when you replace your air conditioner is to enhance your residence’s attic insulation. Merely 10% of homes in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study conducted by Boston University. Having the proper amount of insulation can help keep your energy expenses lower and keep your residence more pleasant all year.
Also, we suggest closing any air leaks in your home before we do an AC sizing calculation. A more leakproof, more insulated house could call for a smaller system, saving you on your starting investment and possibly decreasing your electrical bills in the future.
