Dear EarthTalk: Now that hot weatheris coming, I want to upgrade my home’sA/C. Which are the most energy-savingmodels and should I go central air or win-dow units?— Jackie Smith, Cary, NC
According to the American Council for anEnergy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), energyconsumption for home air conditioning unitsaccounts for more than eight percent of all theelectricity produced in the U.S., at a cost tohomeowners of $15 billion annually. Besidesthe cost, all this cooling leads to annual emis-sions of about 195 million tons of CO2—ortwo tons per year for each American homewith A/C.Of course, foregoing A/C entirely is themost energy- and cost-efficient way to go,but some of us need a little cooling for com-fort, especially in warmer climates. If A/Cis a must, buying the most efficient modelis the way to save money and pollute less.Fortunately, a new generation of much moreefficient room and central A/C units meansthat upgrading will likely pay for itself inenergy savings within just a few years.The main factors to consider in choosing anew model are cooling capacity (measured inBritish Thermal Units, or BTUs) and Energy-Efficiency Ratio, or EER. To determine thecorrect BTU rating for a given space, multiplythe square footage by 10 and then add 4,000.Meanwhile, a given unit’s EER is the ratio of cooling output divided by power consump-tion—the higher the EER, the more efficientthe air conditioner.According to the U.S. Department of Energy, national appliance standards requireroom air conditioners to have an EER of 8.0to 9.8 or more, depending on type and capac-ity. Units with an EER rating of 10 or abovetypically qualify for the federal government’sENERGY STAR label, which appears onespecially energy-efficient appliances. Checkout the ENERGY STAR website for lists of qualifying A/C models.The Association of Home ApplianceManufacturers (AHAM) says that the averageEER of room A/C units rose 47 percent from1972 to 1991. To wit, replacing an older roomunit with an EER of five with a new modelwith an EER of 10) would result in a 50 per-cent energy cost savings associated with A/C.As to whether room units or central A/Cmakes more sense, it depends. Room units,which only cost a few hundred dollars each,will suffice for renters or those who onlyneed to keep one or two rooms cool at a time.Meanwhile, central A/C is more efficientoverall at keeping a whole house cool, andwill also do a better job at reducing householdhumidity than even several individual roomunits—and will save more money faster onelectricity bills. But with a starting price of around $4,000 for the condenser and initialset-up (plus any duct work needed to distrib-ute cool air around a home), central A/C isn’tfor everyone.ACEEE points out that there are waysto keep indoor space cooler without A/C:improving insulation, sealing air gaps, gettingrid of old appliances and light bulbs that giveoff lots of heat, running fans, using coolercolors on exterior roofing and paint, and otherstrategies. Those in particularly arid climatesmight also consider installing a swamp cooler(which cools outside air by running it overcold water) as a cheaper alternative to A/C.By following these suggestions and upgradingconscientiously, we can all stay a little morecomfortable in our warming world withoutexacerbating the problem too much.

From an energy-efficiency standpoint, room A/C units are best for keeping one or tworooms cool at a time, while central air is more efficient overall at keeping a whole housecool. (Comstock/Hemera Collection photo)

Use of helmets has prov-en to be 37 percent effec-tive at preventing fatal inju-ries to the operators and41 percent effective forpassengers. The NationalHighway Traffic SafetyAdministration (NHTSA)estimates that 706 of themotorcyclists who died incrashes in 2010 would havelived if they had worn hel-mets.National Safety CouncilCommunications DirectorKathy Lane said thatmotorcyclists should followthe rules of the roadwayand wear protective gear,including a Department of Transportation complianthelmet. Riders should avoidriding in poor weather con-ditions, position the motor-cycle in the lane out of amotorist’s blind spot anduse turn signals for everyturn or lane change.Other factors play a sub-stantial role in crash fatali-ties. In 2010, 29 percentof fatally-injured cyclisthad a blood alcohol con-centration at or above thelegal limit of .08 percent,35 percent were speedingand 22 percent did not havea valid motorcycle license.The motorcycle license testprompts many riders tocomplete a training course.Lane said there are someimportant tips for motoriststo follow, including allow-ing a greater following dis-tance behind a motorcycleand giving the rider the fulllane width – never try toshare a lane.“Be extra cautiousin intersections,” Lanedetailed. “Most crashesoccur when a motoristfails to see a motorcyclistand turns left in front of amotorcycle.”In addition, motoristscan become more cognizantof motorcyclists by exer-cising additional preventa-tive measures. Don’t relyon perception; estimate thata motorcycle is closer thanit looks. Remember turnsignals on a motorcycleare not always automati-cally self-canceling; driversmust determine whether amotorcycle’s turn signal isfor real. Note that a motor-cyclist will adjust positionwithin a lane to be seenmore readily, avoid roaddebris and deal with pass-ing vehicles and wind.Also, operators decreasespeed by downshifting orrolling off the throttle,which does not activate abrake light, so leave plentyof room and do not tailgatemotorcyclists.
