There’s no doubt every homeowner dreads the thought of buying a new air conditioning system for his or her home. It’s a costly expense, and if your HVAC system breaks down unexpectedly, it can become one that burdens your finances well into the future. If you plan ahead and budget for it, though, investing in a new air conditioning system for your home in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, can actually lead to immediate and long-term savings.

A New Air Conditioner Uses Less Energy and Leads to Lower Bills
One of the biggest benefits of buying a new air conditioning system is that it’s manufactured with a new set of standards to adhere to. The SEER, or the seasonal energy efficiency ratio, measures the amount of energy you need to cool your home and the amount of energy the air conditioner uses to do it.
Today, the government requires that all newly manufactured air conditioners have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio of at least 14. Although a new HVAC system like the Infinity® 21 Central Air Conditioner might initially cost more, its high SEER will lead to lower monthly bills because it’ll use less energy to cool your home.
A New Air Conditioner Pays for Itself Over the Long Term
Of course, when it comes to money and savings, nothing is for certain until you crunch the numbers and make some comparisons. Let’s take a look at how much you could save with a new system that has a high ratio versus an old one that has a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of 10.
SEER of 21 vs. 10
- Based on the United States national average, you would save 52 percent annually.
- Your five-year savings would amount to $850
- Your 10-year savings would amount to $1700
- Your 15-year savings would amount to $2550
SEER of 19 vs. 10
- Based on the United States national average, you would save 48 percent annually.
- Your five-year savings would amount to $770
- Your 10-year savings would amount to $1540
- Your 15-year savings would amount to $2310
Ratio of 17 vs. 10
- Based on the United States national average, you would save 41 percent annually.
- Your five-year savings would amount to $670
- Your 10-year savings would amount to $1340
- Your 15-year savings would amount to $2010
When you take into account that most air conditioners last anywhere from 15 to 20 years, especially if you invest in or perform preventative maintenance regularly, your monthly savings from your utility bills would eventually pay for the new system – no matter which type you decide to purchase. When you factor in fewer repairs because of a lighter workload, you save even more money over the long term with a new air conditioning system.
