Room Air Conditioners
Modern room air conditioners use 50% less electricity than 1990 models. That's a huge savings in your electrical bill this summer, if you replace your old unit. In addition, newer units no longer use Ozone Depleting Substances (CFC or HCFC).
Window air conditioners create a large demand on electricity production in the summer time, so the use of fossil fuel and coal generated electricity soars when the temperature rises. Inefficient window air conditioners also contribute to higher emissions of nitrogen oxides into the environment, a key element in producing ground level ozone – commonly referred to as smog.
Tips to Reduce Air Conditioning Use
Contact your local power authority to see if they provide assistance to replace your old air conditioner. In Ontario for example, they provide a $25 rebate for replacing your old unit during 3 weekends in June. They also provide free recycling of old air conditioners to reduce the impact on the environment.
