What Does SEER Rating Mean?
There is no doubt, the heating and air conditioning industry has it’s own language. In fact, there is a mountain of terminology used in the industry of which the general public hardly ever uses (or needs to). For that reason, we’ve created an HVAC glossary of terms and included it on our website. You can view that information here: johnjoneshvac.com/glossary.
One group of letters you should be familiar with is SEER Rating. Seer stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It’s definition is ” the cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input during the same period. The higher the unit’s SEER rating the more energy efficient it is.”
Higher SEER Rating Means Greater Efficiency
In short, if you compare two HVAC systems, one having a 10 SEER Rating and the other having a 20 SEER Rating, the system with a 20 SEER Rating will be 50% more energy efficient. SEER Ratings are critical in determining the energy efficiency of your home, particularly when it comes time to replace your home’s HVAC system.
For instance, if your current home’s HVAC system has a SEER Rating of 10, and you choose to replace your system with a new 15 SEER system, you can expect to use roughly 33% less energy heating and cooling your home. Long story short: your energy bill should be reduced by 33% as well.
