SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is a measure of an air conditioner’s efficiency. The higher the rating the more energy-efficient an air conditioning unit is. If you’re interested you can find out more about the exact way SEER in calculated. Essentially, it’s a ratio of the cooling capacity of an air conditioner to the amount of power it takes to operate.
When it comes time to purchase a new air conditioner for your home or business it’s important to choose one that has a high SEER rating. These unit are typically more expensive than their low SEER equivalents, but the savings come in the long run through the amount of savings you’ll notice on your energy bills.
SEER Means Energy-Efficient
Overall, the higher the SEER number on your air conditioner the more efficient it is. Consequently the more efficient it is the less energy it will use, and the less energy it uses the less money it will cost you to operate. Using less energy also means that your carbon footprint is much smaller, so you’re also doing your part to reduce environmental emissions. An air conditioner that’s ten years old or more will have a much lower SEER rating than even some of the least efficient models being sold these days.
Not every home or office needs to purchase an air conditioner with the highest possible rating. While the benefits will always be heightened the better the SEER rating there is a point where the size of the unit and the size of the space its cooling needs to be considered in order to ensure costs aren’t getting out of hand. Overall it’s important to consider multiple things prior to choosing and air conditioner for your home or commercial building.
