Air-Conditioners – Did you Know
Research by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) finds home air-conditioning and heating systems are the single largest energy consumer in our homes. In 1987, the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act set minimum federal standards for energy efficiency of many residential appliances. The Energy Policy Act of 1992, further expanded those standards to include air-conditioners and heating systems. Since 1992, all air-conditioning manufacturers have been required to comply with the United States Department of Energy (DOE) energy conservation standards Air-conditioner energy efficiency is measured by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), and beginning in 2023 the new SEER2 rating. Today, based on SEER(2), air-conditioners fall into three broad categories, federal minimum efficiency, mid-efficiency, and high-efficient systems. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires manufacturers to display a unit’s SEER(2) on the yellow energy guide labels found on each piece of equipment. Labeling empowers buyers to compare various products based on estimated annual operating costs and ensures consumers know what they are buying. SEER2 describes how much cooling is produced for every watt of power purchased. For example, a new high-efficient 26 SEER air-conditioner uses half of the electricity a 13 SEER air-conditioner needs while producing the same amount of space conditioning drastically reducing electric bills.
A further classification of air-conditioners concerns compressor stages. Two-stage or multi-stage compressors can operate at a lower speed and corresponding lower power consumption part of the time. For instance, many two-stage air-conditioner compressors initially cycle on at forty to sixty percent power and only when required ramp up to one hundred percent. This staging capability allows for better comfort and humidity control during shoulder months in the spring and fall, all while delivering lower energy usage.
Additionally, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), finds air-conditioning systems in homes and buildings contribute to global warming emission both directly through refrigerant leaks, and indirectly through fossil fuel emissions for electricity production. Particularly harmful are older, phased-out, refrigerants still in service. Chlorine based refrigerants are especially harmful, destroying ozone in the upper atmosphere. During the 1990s, and early 2000s, replacements were developed to significantly reduce ozone depletion potential, but present global warming potential. Many of these refrigerants are still in use today in residential air-conditioners in the U.S. Today, newer alternative refrigerants eliminate all hazards to ozone while significantly reducing global warming potential.
Finally, research published in the Journal of Building Engineering conducted cost benefit analysis on upgrading existing residential air-conditioners to high-efficient systems, and found a simple payback period of 5 years or less. Additionally, the study confirmed, large-scale transitioning, would mitigate tens of millions of tons of CO2 emissions per year. The peer-reviewed journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), finds continued advances in cooling technology, such as multi-stage compressors, dynamic expansion valves, and advanced controls, will result in lower energy consumption for space conditioning. Along the lines of environmental stewardship, the anticipated higher energy efficiencies of cooling systems are predicted to help offset growing demand and global adoption of air-conditioning in response to global warming.
