Energy Efficiency and Savings Calculations

Investing in a high-efficiency Trane air conditioner can lead to significant energy savings and reduced utility bills. Here are three examples of energy calculations for homes in BC using different Trane air conditioner models:

Example 1: Small Home

  • Home Size: 1,200 square feet
  • Location: Vancouver, BC
  • Trane Model: XV18
  • SEER Rating: 18
  • Cooling Load: 24,000 BTUs (2 tons)
  • Estimated Annual Cooling Hours: 800

Energy Usage Calculation: Energy usage (kWh) = Cooling load (BTUs) × Cooling hours / (SEER × 1,000) Energy usage = 24,000 × 800 / (18 × 1,000) = 1,066.67 kWh

Energy Cost Calculation: Assuming an electricity rate of $0.12 per kWh: Energy cost = 1,066.67 kWh × $0.12 = $128.00

Comparison with a Standard 14 SEER Unit: Energy usage (14 SEER) = 24,000 × 800 / (14 × 1,000) = 1,371.43 kWh Energy cost (14 SEER) = 1,371.43 kWh × $0.12 = $164.57

Annual Savings: Annual savings = $164.57 – $128.00 = $36.57

Example 2: Medium Home

  • Home Size: 2,000 square feet
  • Location: Burnaby, BC
  • Trane Model: XV20i
  • SEER Rating: 22
  • Cooling Load: 36,000 BTUs (3 tons)
  • Estimated Annual Cooling Hours: 800

Energy Usage Calculation: Energy usage (kWh) = Cooling load (BTUs) × Cooling hours / (SEER × 1,000) Energy usage = 36,000 × 800 / (22 × 1,000) = 1,309.09 kWh

Energy Cost Calculation: Assuming an electricity rate of $0.12 per kWh: Energy cost = 1,309.09 kWh × $0.12 = $157.09

Comparison with a Standard 14 SEER Unit: Energy usage (14 SEER) = 36,000 × 800 / (14 × 1,000) = 2,057.14 kWh Energy cost (14 SEER) = 2,057.14 kWh × $0.12 = $246.86

Annual Savings: Annual savings = $246.86 – $157.09 = $89.77

Example 3: Large Home

  • Home Size: 3,500 square feet
  • Location: Surrey, BC
  • Trane Model: XR17
  • SEER Rating: 17
  • Cooling Load: 60,000 BTUs (5 tons)
  • Estimated Annual Cooling Hours: 800

Energy Usage Calculation: Energy usage (kWh) = Cooling load (BTUs) × Cooling hours / (SEER × 1,000) Energy usage = 60,000 × 800 / (17 × 1,000) = 2,823.53 kWh

Energy Cost Calculation: Assuming an electricity rate of $0.12 per kWh: Energy cost = 2,823.53 kWh × $0.12 = $338.82

Comparison with a Standard 14 SEER Unit: Energy usage (14 SEER) = 60,000 × 800 / (14 × 1,000) = 3,428.57 kWh Energy cost (14 SEER) = 3,428.57 kWh × $0.12 = $411.43

Annual Savings: Annual savings = $411.43 – $338.82 = $72.61
