SEER Rating

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) determines how energy efficient an air conditioner is per season/region. While EER is a better rating for smaller units, SEER rates larger appliances such as central air conditioning units. The more cool (or hot) air the system puts out for each unit of energy consumed, the higher the rating it will receive due to its energy efficiency. SEER is measured as the seasonal BTU output of cooling divided by the seasonal watt-hours used.

According to the government, the lowest SEER score is 13; to qualify as an ENERGY STAR product, the unit must be ranked at a minimum of 14. It is important to take into account the region you’re located in when looking at SEER ratings. It is more logical for someone in a warmer climate, such as Florida, to invest in a high SEER air conditioner as opposed to someone who lives in the North East where there are only a few months of warm temperatures per year.
