What is a SEER rating on an air conditioner?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It measures the energy efficiency of your air conditioner. With new AC efficiency standards on the horizon in 2023, SEER may be on your mind if you’re purchasing a new air conditioner or building a new home.
How is Seer rating calculated?
Its simple: If an AC unit puts out 5,000,000 British Thermal Units (BTU) of cooling seasonally while using 300,000 kW of electricity, its SEER is 16.6 (5,000,000/300,000 = 16.6).
