San Antonio summers can be challenging for air conditioning systems. The oppressive heat can be difficult to beat with an old, inefficient system. Not only does it have a hard time keeping your home comfortable, it can also suck you dry when it comes to utility costs. Replacing your old air conditioning system with a more efficient one can have several benefits. Here’s a breakdown of just how much a return you could see on your investment in a new system.
You don’t want a system that just barely keeps you comfortable while requiring large amount of energy to operate. Switching to a high-efficiency system will continue to benefit you over the years. As an example, we compared a standard cooling system with a SEER rating of 9, to a high-efficiency system with a SEER rating of 15. Each system is sized at 4 tons (the most common system size), and has the same number of operating hours. As you can see in the image below, your savings continue to compound and increase over the years when you replace your standard AC system with a high-efficiency one. After 20 years you may have accrued as much as $41,400 dollars in energy savings.
*This data is a reflection of replacing a 9 SEER air conditioner with a 15 SEER air conditioner. Energy savings will vary depending on the type of windows, insulation, quality of construction, etc. They are only meant as averages, but the bottom line is that replacing old equipment pays for itself over time in utility savings.

Besides the benefit of crazy energy savings, you’ll also see benefits when it comes to maintenance costs and your comfort. High efficiency air conditioning systems require less energy to operate at the same level as older, less efficient systems. Your home will be more comfortable even when your system is running at a lower setting. Because high-efficiency systems operate this way, it also reduces the occurrence of system breakdowns and urgent maintenance needs.
