How Much Electricity Does A Central Air Conditioning System Use?

It’s difficult to estimate the exact cost of operating a home central air system due to different levels of insulation, quality of windows, temperature setting, etc. in each home. However, various studies estimate that a system running 7 hours per day during the summer will average $110 per month for equipment more than 8 years old.

New, high efficiency central air systems use 30% – 50% less electricity than older models. This can save homeowners hundreds of dollars on their electrical bills during the summer.

Homeowners can also save on their electrical bills by keeping window shades shut, turning the temperature up a couple of degrees and increasing insulation in the home.

With tax credits up to $1500 and rebates incentives homeowners can save over $2000 on a new, high efficient central air system.
