This is a measurement of an air conditioner’s cooling capacity vs power input, or simply, the ratio of cooling produced (in BTUs) divided by the amount of electricity used (in watts).
The higher the SEER rating means the greater the unit’s efficiency – saving you more money on energy costs in the long run. Each 1 SEER = estimated appx $7 p/month.
Even if your system is 10-15 years old and continues to work well, still consider investing in a newer unit. Depending on your current unit’s SEER rating. Upgrading to a newer, more efficient model could save annually on your energy bill.
For example, say your current air conditioner has a SEER rating of 9, and you upgraded to a 13 SEER air conditioner, your power consumption would be reduced by 28 percent.
You could save (an estimated average) up to $300 a year in energy costs. The Department of Energy has accessible online energy-efficiency calculators you can use to help predict the energy costs you’ll save with various SEER ratings.Click HERE for an Instant Estimate
