Does Central Air Use More Electricity?

Written on: July 3, 2023

central air wyoming county, pa Summer is officially here. Now that things are heating up outside, you’re going to be looking for ways to stay as cool as possible inside. And if you’re like most, you’re hoping to do it as economically as possible. To stay cool without breaking the bank, you want an energy efficient way to stay cool. That means using as little electricity as possible.

Which is better in terms of electricity use, central air or room air conditioners? Let’s take a look.

According to the US Department of Energy, central air conditioners are more efficient than room air conditioners. That means central air conditioning doesn’t use more electricity to keep the same amount of space cool. Central air is the more energy efficient option.

There are additional benefits to using central air conditioning. Central air keeps things out of the way. You don’t have to lose a window or part of a window like you do with a window unit. Central air conditioning is also very quiet and convenient to operate.

Looking to install central air conditioning or upgrade to a more modern and efficient system? Ace-Robbins provides expert central air conditioning installation in Montrose, Scranton, Towanda, and in nearby towns.

Age Matters

When it comes to efficiency, the age of your air conditioning matters as well. According to the US Department of Energy, today’s most efficient air conditioners use between 30% and 50% less energy than models made in the mid 1970s. And versus an air conditioner that’s 10 years old, a modern unit could save you 10% to 40% on your cooling costs because of improved efficiency.

Maintenance Matters

Your HVAC system is a major investment. And the best way to keep it running as efficiently as possible is to have it regularly serviced by a professional. The easiest way to make sure your air conditioning system gets the service it needs is to sign up for the Ace-Robbins Cooling Maintenance Plan. It’s a great way to reduce the need for future repairs, extend the life of your system, and guarantee it’s operating as efficiently as possible (which saves you money on your energy bills). And in the rare event that repairs become necessary, as a Cooling Maintenance Plan member, you’ll save on covered repairs.

Membership in the Ace-Robbins Cooling Maintenance Plan includes a yearly multipoint tune-up for your air conditioning system. This will keep your AC system running at peak efficiency, and that translates into lower cooling costs for you.
