Do You Know Your SEER Rating?

Keeping heating and cooling costs down is a priority for all of us. Although  the SEER ratings of your home heating and air conditioning units may not be the first thing you think of when considering energy use, awareness of the ratings can help to maximize energy efficiency and lower utility costs.

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating and is a measurement of energy efficiency over a period of time (for example, during the summer months for air conditioners). A SEER rating is calculated by measuring cooling output in BTUs (British thermal units) during a typical season divided by total electric energy input in watt-hours during that season. A higher SEER rating equals greater energy efficiency. As of January 1, 2006, the United States has mandated a minimum SEER of 13 for new air conditioners.

Compare the SEER rating for various units before deciding on a purchase. You can find a variety of air conditioning units and SEER ratings by shopping first online. The most efficient units have a SEER rating from 16 - 25. Energy Star appliances are required to have a minimum SEER of 14. At Rodenhiser. we recommend the Carrier Infinity 21 which performs with a SEER rating of up to 21.

Knowing your SEER ratings is one component to keeping your home comfortable and energy efficient. For more details and energy saving tips, download our free Home Comfort Solutions Guide.

Our goal is to help educate our customers about energy and home comfort issues (specific to HVAC systems).  For more information about SEER Ratings and other HVAC topics, check out our website.
