How Much Is Your Old Air Conditioning System Costing You?

With newer technology, air conditioning units are becoming much more efficient.

Everyone remembers the noisy, bulky air conditioners that were heavy on power consumption from about 15 to 20 years ago. Now, everyone is asking what has changed with the modern technology now that the older models are a thing of the past. Technology has changed so much, and so have all of the air conditioners. They are now more efficient, smarter, and a lot quieter.

Older style air conditioning units had a heat transfer agent known as Freon gas, which changes in state from gas to liquid, then flows through pipes between two parts of the air conditioner, known as the condenser, which is inside, and the evaporator, which is inside. The motors that the older units had in them years ago, including compressors and fan motors, were calculated by hand by designers and engineers. These calculations had been done by charts, graphs and long formulas. Even though they were good, they were not up to the standards of today.

In all industries, modern technology has been taking over, and for the better. Newer designs and innovations have been adapting with the ever-growing demands and increasing energy bills.

With both business and daily life, this can increase the feeling of being under financial pressure, but achieving a good amount of savings is possible. This is especially true when it comes to your air conditioning. The key here is assessing the facts. What will your old air cost you in terms of energy, maintenance and repairs over a 5 year term when compared to a newer system that is more efficient? With the aid of calculations, the highly efficient fan motors, new refrigerants and scroll compressors have been able to improve running costs for current systems by well over 30%. These newer materials and improved manufacturing processes are crucial factors that have changed dramatically across the air conditioning industry.

The result ends up being lower noise levels and power consumption, units that are lighter, more compact and more stable. Additionally, they will have more efficient technology and less emission of gases that go out into the environment. All of this has been achieved without having to sacrifice on power and heating over a modern day air conditioner.
