Replacing Your Air Conditioner
you replace your older inefficient air conditioner with a new efficient air
conditioner, you will save money on your air conditioning costs. How much
you save depends on how often your run your air conditioner and the efficiencies
of the old and new air conditioners. The
following formula is used to estimate annual dollar savings:
( ( Existing Capacity in
Btu/hr / Existing SEER Efficiency ) - ( proposed Capacity in Btu/hr / Proposed
SEER Efficiency )) x Cooling Load Hours / 1000 x Cost/kwh = Annual Dollar
Capacity = Found on name plate.
Existing SEER Efficiency = Get from SEER Table.
Proposed Capacity = Get from vendor.
Proposed SEER Efficiency = Get from vendor.
Cooling Load Hours = Get from Cooling
Load Hour Table.
Cost/kwh = Get from dividing kwh on bill by total for bill.
