Example: Annual cooling cost to run a 3-ton (36,000 BTU/Hour) installed in the 1990´s with a 10 SEER will be $1,210.
If replaced with a new 16 SEER system, the cost drops to $760 – a savings of $450 per year.

Cost based on 2.800 annual cooling hours and 12 cents per kWh (average for South Florida).
