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.

What If I don’t know the age of my system?

Not knowing the age of your system will not prevent you from getting an energy savings estimate. You can always have Baker come out for a diagnostic of your system. Call us at 877.578.8080. In the meantime, we will default your system to a standard SEER rating of 9.

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.

How do I find it?

Locate your condenser or heat pump on the exterior of your home. Here are two options to find your SEER rating: 1. Look for a large, yellow sticker on the side of your condenser that states the optimal SEER rating. OR 2. Locate the AC system’s condenser or heat pump’s manufacturer, model, and serial number. Call the manufacturer or us here at Baker at 877.578.8080 and we can help you.

What if I can’t find it?

If you can't find it, the calculator will default at a SEER rating of 9. This is based on the energy efficiency ratings of older systems.

What size home are you trying to cool??

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 every 500 square feet of your home, a ton of AC is needed on average to keep it cool.

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 it.

750 sq ft. 1625 sq ft. 2500+ sq ft.

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.

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.
