While it’s hard to break the numbers down locally, nationwide the average cost to run an air conditioner is about $280 and comes to about 16 percent of the average homeowner’s electric bill.
But there’s more to just the cost in dollars, there’s the cost in carbon emissions that your Little Elm air conditioning unit emits each time you turn it on.
Air conditioners run on electricity and that power often comes from a power plant that burns natural gas, coal or oil to generate the electricity. Burning these fossil fuels releases Co2 into the air, which is contributing to climate change.
We’re certainly not advocating that you never use your air conditioning unit; it can and does become unbearably hot and sticky here in the summer. We’re just suggesting that there are ways to save money, save electricity and help save the planet by trying some new cooling techniques.
