Why SEER Ratings Are So Important

Saving our atmosphere and your pocket money at the same time!

Many people don’t spend their time catching up on popular HVAC system lingo, its not exactly a fascinating subject. In fact, many times when people call a technician to their home to fix an appliance and the technician tells them what’s wrong, the customer has no idea what they’re talking about. Here at Professional AC & Heating, our skilled HVAC technicians try to educate our customers the best they can so that they know what is being done and why. Today Professional AC & Heating would like to educate you on SEER ratings, lets dig in.

When You See “SEER” Think of Energy

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency. This is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. Having a higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency. The federal government mandates that all new central air conditioning equipment be at least SEER-13, but SEER ratings can go all the way up to 25! At Professional AC & Heating our licensed HVAC techs will recommend what size and SEER rating your HVAC system should be in order to best heat and cool your home cost-effectively.

Simultaneously Reducing CO2 and Energy Costs

Did you know if you have gotten a system installed that is a SEER-14 or greater you are entitled to a tax break for being an energy efficient citizen? Isn’t that great? There are so many ways that having a low energy system can save. They save energy reducing your bills and they also even lower your home’s CO2 output. Reducing your carbon footprint is a serious matter and anything anyone can do to help reduce it is a life saver. We want this beautiful Earth to be around for many generations to come and the only way to do that is by taking care of it.

Invest in a Unit with the Highest SEER Rating Possible

Putting your money into a unit with a high SEER rating is beneficial in many ways as you’ve seen. HVAC units are always expensive to replace, that’s why if you ever have to do it make sure you invest in a unit with the highest SEER rating you can afford. You can bet that you’ll save money in the long run on energy costs and replacement of your system because the less work it needs to run, the longer the system will last.
