What Does SEER Mean?
When replacing or installing a new high efficiency air conditioning system, the term energy efficiency is based on SEER ratings, “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.” SEER ratings are the air conditioning system efficiency rating, like the miles per gallon for your car, your car might get 21.50 miles per gallon or “21.50 SEER – 16.00 miles per gallon or 16.00 SEER – Minimal standard is 13.00 miles per gallon or 13.00 SEER – The higher the SEER rating the less it cost to operate without sacrificing comfort.
What Does EER Mean?
Let us say you have an air conditioning unit with a 12,000 Btu that consumes 1,200 watts of electricity. Using the calculation, you will find that the system has an EER of 10. In figure, it can be expressed as follows: = 10 EER 1,200 watts Basically, the higher the EER means the more energy-efficient the system is. Logically, when purchasing a new system, it would be best to pick the unit with a higher EER. Usually, you will find the EER listed in a yellow sticker (written with a title “Energy Guide”) attached on the side of an air conditioning unit.
