In many locations in of North America, central air conditioning is crucial to guarantee home comfort during the sweltering summer months. Unfortunately, cooling may be the highest expense on your monthly energy bills.
The key to decreasing your ongoing charges might be to install a new, high-efficiency air conditioner. This used to require a big upfront investment. Now, there new options available that make buying an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner in your house simpler than ever.
We’ll give you more information about this option in a moment. But one thing is correct, a an up-to-date, high-efficiency air conditioner can deliver considerable lifetime energy savings. Here’s what to consider as you look into air conditioning replacement in Edmonton.
Why a Greater SEER Rating is Worthwhile
Every air conditioner earns a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which measures how efficiently it transforms electricity into cooling. Bigger 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 reside in the South, your new air conditioner is required to be at a baseline of 14 SEER.
For comparison, the smallest standard in the 1990s was 10 SEER, and premium air conditioners on the market today reach approximately 25 SEER. The Lennox Energy Calculator shows that improving your 10 SEER air conditioner to a mid-grade 16 SEER system could save you 38% on your utility bills per year!
Why Determining Your Air Conditioner’s Size is Critical
Sizing your cooling system accurately is also essential if you hope to reduce your monthly utility expenses.
Cooling systems are rated in “tons.” Sizing is crucial because an air conditioner that’s too massive or little can’t keep your home comfortable.
An air conditioner that’s too large will commonly short cycle, which means it will struggle to remove humidity properly. One that’s too tiny will fall behind with demand on hot days. Both troubles will lead to your home being too humid, increase use of on your air conditioner and could drive up your utility expenses.

Additional Ways to Increase Your House’s Efficiency
The final approach to ensure monthly savings when you install a new air conditioner is to increase your home’s attic insulation. Just 10% of residences in the U.S. have adequate attic insulation, according to study conducted by Boston University. Having the proper depth of insulation could help keep your energy costs lower and keep your residence more pleasant no matter the weather.
Also, we recommend securing any air leaks in your residence before we do an AC sizing calculation. A tighter, more insulated home may use a smaller air conditioner, saving you on your initial investment and likely reducing your cooling costs in the future.
