Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning takes pride in being a trusted expert in helping people in need of AC repair in Port St. Lucie, FL. Cooling units can seem to be rather hungry for electricity. However, how much electricity do they really use? Answering that question requires some information about your location. In general, similar-sized air conditioners burn through similar amounts of energy regardless of their manufacturer.

Most Central ACs Use Around 3,000 to 5,000 Watts Over the Day

AC tune-ups might help lower your energy consumption. Still, for an average-sized home, it wouldn't be surprising to see someone use up to 5,000 watts. You'll notice the biggest increase in consumption during the hottest months of the year. Unless the property or area is massive, you shouldn't use much more than 3,000 watts during the cooler months.

The Larger Your Home, The More Energy They Tend to Use

Having an AC replacement might not lower your energy consumption if you've got a large home. Even super-efficient systems use rather large quantities of electricity to regulate the climate. As such, bigger homes will almost always have larger electric bills.

Mini-Split Systems Offer A Less Energy-Intensive Method of Climate Control

Ductless systems don't cover as large an area; however, they use a lot less electricity. If you only need to keep a specific room comfortable, they might be the least expensive way to do it. Most of the time, these use less than 1,500 watts daily to keep a room cool. Rest assured that our AC services are available for just about any make or model, so be sure to reach out to us regardless of your specific unit or issue.
