The solution to reducing your ongoing costs may be to get a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. In the past, this required a sizeable upfront investment. Now, 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 solution in just a bit. But one thing is true, a a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner can provide considerable energy savings during its lifetime. Here’s what to consider as you research air conditioning replacement in Hilton Head Island. 

Why a Greater 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. 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 has to be at minimum 14 SEER. 

To compare, 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 enhancing your 10 SEER equipment to a mid-range 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your cooling costs annually! 

Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size Matters

Sizing your cooling system properly is also essential if you want to lower your monthly air conditioning expenses. 

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

An air conditioner that’s too large will often short cycle, which means it will have difficulty removing humidity correctly. One that’s too tiny 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 utility costs.

Other Methods to Enhance Your Home’s Efficiency

The final method to verify monthly savings when you get a new air conditioner is to boost your home’s attic insulation. Just 10% of houses in the U.S. have proper attic insulation, according to study performed by Boston University. Having the right depth of insulation might help keep your heating and cooling costs low and keep your house more comfy throughout the year. 

In addition, we recommend closing any air leaks in your house before we do an AC sizing calculation. A less leaky, more insulated house could need a smaller model, saving you on your upfront investment and likely lowering your cooling costs in the future.
