Percent of Annual Heating and Cooling Savings with a higher SEER heat pump:
KEY: first column: old SEER, top row: new SEER, percentages: equals savings
Today’s best high-efficiency air conditioners use 30 to 50 percent less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid 1970s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20 to 40 percent of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.

If you use electricity to heat your home, consider installing a high-efficiency heat pump system. Heat pumps are the most efficient form of electric heating in moderate climates, providing three times more heating than the equivalent amount of energy they consume in electricity. Heat pumps also do double duty as a central air conditioner. A heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating as much as 30 to 40 percent.
