Cooling is often one of the largest sources of energy use in homes. Knowing how much energy you’re using can be eye opening. Depending on your cooling system, cooling your home can have a big impact on your energy use and drive up your bill. If you’re looking to cut costs and save energy, try the Cooling Cost Calculator by Eversource. You’ll be able to select your equipment type and understand average daily and annual costs based on various temperature settings.
You can compare how much it would cost to cool with a window unit, a whole home air conditioner, or a mini split heat pump. Guess which system has the lowest average cost? The mini split. You may want to keep that in mind when you are ready for an upgrade.
