What is a SEER rating?
SEER is an acronym for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Every air conditioner or heat pump has a SEER rating that is meant to gauge energy efficiency. As your system ages, the SEER rating will lower over time.
Why does the age of my system matter?
As your system ages, it will become less energy efficient over time. Even an old system that was rarely used still will not have the energy savings of a new Air Conditioning system.
Why is the size of my home important?
Each system is designed to remove heat from your home. Larger homes have tons of heat it in, literally. For instance, a one-ton air conditioner can remove 12,000 Btu's of heat from your house in one hour's time.
My home is larger than 2,500 sq ft?
For residential homes, the largest system you can have is a 5- ton unit which can typically cool a 2,500 sq ft space. Larger units are considered a commercial size. This is why larger homes will have multiple systems or zones in them.
How do you calculate my current SEER rating and the savings?
The AC Energy Savings Calculator’s goal is to find out how much you are currently spending yearly on electricity to run your current AC and compare that energy cost to a new AC system. This calculation is based on a few factors: the energy efficiency of your current AC, the size of your AC, the average cost of electricity in Southern California during main cooling hours, and the average number of cooling hours per year. The base of these calculations uses 40 cents/kWh as the cost of energy and a 1,100 yearly cooling hours average for Southern Californians.
