Are you wondering if it’s worth it to install a new, energy-efficient AC unit? It may seem that your current AC system is “fine.” That is, you might think it a waste to replace a system that still functions and has half its life left.
In reality though, replacing your AC with a newer, more efficient system will ultimately save you money. And below, we’re going to show you how.
Plus, that’s not the only benefit of installing energy-efficient air conditioning. The following guide lists 3 extremely compelling reasons to consider energy-efficient AC equipment for your home. Read on to discover more.
1. Lower Monthly Energy Bill
The most obvious benefit is that installing an energy-efficient AC unit significantly reduces your monthly energy bill. But, do these savings justify the cost you pay for replacement? You’d be surprised how often the answer is, “Yes.”
That said, the amount that you, personally, will save depends on the inefficiency of your current system and how much more efficient the new one is. But we and the U.S. Department of Energy agree that you’ll likely save 20-40% on your cooling costs by making the switch. But we can’t make a more accurate estimate of what your monthly savings will be unless we come by for an inspection.
Besides, you don’t have to take our word for it anyway. Have someone from your electric company come to your house to perform a free energy audit. They will be able to tell you how much you’ll save with energy-efficient AC equipment.
2. Cheaper Maintenance Cost
Your energy bill’s not the only way you’ll save money, either. You’ll also save on the cost of maintenance.
You see, all AC systems naturally become less efficient as they age. Plus, a lot of older systems are based on technology that wasn’t all that efficient to begin with.
In any case, when an AC system isn’t running efficiently, it has to work harder/longer to get the job done. The more it works, the faster it wears out.
This leads to more frequent repairs and less time between replacements. In other words, it will cost you a lot of money.
But a new, efficient system doesn’t work nearly as hard. Thus, it takes a lot more time for such a system to wear out. Installing a system like this makes a lot more sense than spending the next few years doctoring up your current system.
3. Better Performance
Besides using less energy, efficient AC equipment also does a better job of keeping your house cool. For example, many people who own inefficient systems are forced to run their AC all day, even if they’re not home. That’s because, if their house gets too hot, their struggling AC system can’t cool down the house quickly, if it even can at all.
Furthermore, AC that doesn’t cool the house well enough is dangerous, especially for babies and the elderly. It’s important to the health of your household that you use efficient air conditioning. Most high-efficiency systems run more quietly than other systems, too.
