At some time, most Longview TX homeowners will need to replace their air conditioning equipment. Air conditioners in Texas undergo heavy use and the life expectancy for an AC unit in Texas is about 10 years. In addition, older units consume more energy than newly manufactured, energy efficient models. As energy rates are on the rise in Texas, many Texans may consider replacing their systems even before the system has run its course.
Air conditioning systems that are manufactured today consume significantly less energy than older AC systems. For this reason, many homeowners invest in new AC equipment to recoup significant savings on energy costs. Because the air conditioning system is a major consumer of energy in the household, replacing the system with one that more efficiently uses energy is a sure way to save money on utility bills. As energy costs rise, the savings become greater over time. When homeowners also seek to reduce their carbon footprint and make less of an impact on their environment, there is even more justification for replacing an older, energy inefficient AC system with a newer, more environmentally friendly unit.
Higher SEER Ratings
AC equipment that is manufactured today consumes energy much more efficiently to cool the home than older systems manufactured even 7 or 8 years ago. This is due to the fact that the federal standards for SEER ratings have been raised. This means that manufacturers of AC equipment must produce equipment that uses energy much more efficiently.
An air conditioning system that is 7 or 8 years old may have a SEER rating of as low as 8 or 9. Today’s standards mandate that all air conditioning equipment manufactured and sold in the U.S. have a SEER rating of 13 or above. Even AC units with the lowest SEER rating allowable will provide you with energy savings when compared to an older system. For each two point increase in SEER ratings, you will save an estimated 15 to 20 percent off energy costs to cool your home. However, today’s air conditioning equipment may have SEERs as high as in the mid-20s. You could conceivably save as much as 50 percent of what you are now paying for energy to cool your home during the long, hot Texas summers. Additionally, air conditioning equipment manufactured today is designed with additional energy saving features.
