In some apartment complexes,where everbody is in one building it
is possible that you are cooling more than just your apartment. If you have ductwork try to follow it and see if it does not lead to a
entrance or a hallway.

If it is cooling your apartment and you cannot turn it off, tell him you
cannot control the temperature. If you have a breaker panel in your
apartment, locate it and find the breaker labeled AC and turn it off
for a day, if other people complain and you are told to turn your
breaker back on. Then I guess you are paying to help cool part
of your building

I had Ruud heating and cooling installed five years ago. Last summer my electric bill doubled when I began running my air conditioner. It did not do that the first few years that we were in this house. ...

Hello In a way you are stuck with what is called a S.E.E.R. rating which is a statement of efficiency from the manufacturer.Ex: a 10seer is less electricity to run than a 14 seer.The model # would have told me the seer rating.A 4 ton `1 zone is a large unit but even a 10 seer 4 ton is never cost prohibitive to operate and Never doubles the electric bill in 5 days out of thirty.Is the home unoccupied all month and you use it on weekends?Did the neighbor run a strange wire to your property?There might be stray or lost voltage in rare cases if there is poor grounding issues.Has the unit been serviced? A low freon charge will cause a unit to run excessively long and not cool.Do you run the indoor blower all the time.Has there been any other major purchases made (at all) that you plug in?I would look at everything because there is some cause for DOUBLE bill amount not just the cooling bill.Good luck

I have found this model number on the side of the AC unit outside my house and I need to know the tonnage rating. I know it is only 10 seer but can't find this info on the tag.

Did you include the make and model information?
I only see your question worded this way:

I have found this model number on the side of the AC unit outside my house and I need to know the tonnage rating. I know it is only 10 seer but can\'t find this info on the tag.

Tell us more-- or go on line and do a search for the make and model-- Can you do that?

How old is this unit? Will newer units be easier on electrical consumption?

Unfortunately, the model or serial number doesn't show in your question. I see this all the time, I guess it doesn't show all of your information sometimes. So for your first question, you will need the serial number if you don't have a manufacturing date on your data plate somewhere on the unit. In the serial number, it's usually the first 3-4 digits after the letters. Example C1085???. These digits in order will give you the month it was made and the year it was made, so in my example it would be made in October, 1985. It's really hard to tell without a serial number posted though. For your second question, any unit made before 1992 will have around a 10 seer rating or less and some there after. In the most recent few years, you won't get anything less than a 13 seer unit, which is about 30% savings in cost to run the unit and a lot less energy consumption. You can now get up in the 20's with seer ratings which save a ton of money but cost a lot too! Hope this helps and if you still can't figure out the year for your older unit, try posting the serial number in the question itself. Good luck!

I cannot find the seer rating or tonage of a Goodman air conditioner serial number 9908524497

My books do not go back far enough to get you the Seer rating, it is a 5 ton unit and as the serial number shows it to be a 1999 model, it is probably a 10 SEER unit, maybe a 12 seer, but not likely, but I can tell you that it was manufactured on the 8th week of 1999.
I hope that I have helped, have a great day.

Power consumption excessively high

Yes a higher SEER can help reduce electric costs. However. In most cases this will require changing both the indoor and outdoor units. In other words if you have a 10 SEER matched system and only upgrade the outdoor unit to a 14 SEER you will not get exactly 14 SEER efficiency. They must match.

Before excepting bids on new equipment I would first higher a licensed company to measure the Heat gain/loss from you house. This information will tell you if the current system was originally sized correctly. The improper sizing can lead to high electric bills as well. I hope this helps.
