How much does it cost to run an air conditioning system?

2011-07-14

The approximate cost to run a 2.5Kw split system air conditioner on cooling is 7c per hour and 10c per hour on heating.

The approximate cost to run a 15Kw ducted air conditioner that would be suitable for the average 3 bedroom home is 74c per hour on cooling and 79 c per hour on heating.

(The above calculations have been calculated at the maximum power input and using electricity cost of 14c per kilowatt hour.)

The actual cost to run an AC will depend on which type of air conditioner you are going to use, how long will you use it daily and its cost will also based on the current energy prices at the location where you are residing. It is good to know the recent average cost to run an air conditioner in your local area, that way you can determine if the system is working efficiently or if you are being overcharge due to faulty functioning of your air conditioner system. You must keep in mind that malfunction on AC systems can consume up to 40% more energy which simply means that you will have to pay higher on your bills. During hot seasons you can expect your electrical bills to raise higher than the average cost since you will be using your system more.

You will need a programmable AC controller that will turn on and off the system based on its settings that you have input. This will shut down the system in case you forget to turned it off, avoiding excessive power utilization due to mis-consumption. It was proven that a controller can help save up to 15% off on electricity bills.
