Save Money on Air Conditioning Costs

By: Sam Greyhawk
Many people don't realize that their cooling system is one of the biggest energy guzzlers in their home (second only to their heating system, depending on where their live).? If you have an old air conditioning system with a SEER rating of less than 8, it may be worthwhile to consider replacing it with a more energy efficient system. Generally speaking you should be able to recoup the cost in just a few years.So what is SEER?? SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is a measure of the cooling efficiency of your air conditioner or heat pump. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system is at converting electricity into cooling power.Matching your AC unit size to your needs is important too.

An air conditioning unit that is too big for the room will work harder and cost you more.If purchasing a new unit is too expensive for you can still save money on your air conditioning costs.??? An inexpensive (less then $100) way to improve the efficiency of your existing air conditioning system is through the addition of a Cool-N-Save(tm) system (http://www.coolnsave.com/).? Installed in less than five minutes with no tools required, the Cool-N-Save(tm) system affixes to the top of most home air conditioning units.? The Tulane University Department of Mechanical Engineering has completed a study proving Cool-N-Save(tm) increases the overall efficiency of air conditioning systems and lowers electricity costs.Here are some more fastScience Articles, free and easy ways to lower your air conditioning bill.
  • Close drapes on the sunny side of your house.
  • Close off rooms that you aren't using and the cooling ducts to those rooms.
  • Turn off lights when not in use - because lights produce heat they make your air conditioning system work harder (and cost more).
  • Turn off your computer and other home office equipment - because they generate heat as well.
