High electricity bills can put a real damper on the summer. If your energy bills are sky-high and you’ve already insulated, closed the blinds, and turned up the temperature in your home, you may be looking at other ways to save. Lots of customers ask us, “How much will a new AC save me?” Are the savings really worth it for the large expense of AC replacement? If you’re thinking of switching to a more energy efficient AC system, we’re here to explain just how much you’ll save on your energy bills.
How Much Will a New AC Save Me?
It’s reasonable to expect that if your AC system is 10 years old or more, upgrading to a new system will result in lower energy bills. But exactly how much money will you be saving each month? As you might have guessed, the answer to this question depends on many factors. These include:
Your local energy costs
The size of your home
How well your home is insulated
The age of your current system
The efficiency of your current system
In general, by replacing an older system with an energy efficient new system, you can expect to save 20-40% of your energy costs per month.
How Can I Get the Most Savings Out of a New AC?
The best way to ensure you get the most bang for your buck is to consult an HVAC professional. A technician can help match your specific home and budget with an AC of the ideal size, efficiency, and cost. They can explain SEER ratings and will know about local deals and rebates that you can take advantage of from your energy company. They’ll also be able to make recommendations about other ways to save, such as insulation upgrades and weather stripping. An HVAC professional can ensure that you aren’t wasting money on a new AC that is too big for your home, or replacing your system when it’s actually your home’s insulation causing the biggest energy expenses.
