The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), developed by the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute, is an important tool for evaluating the efficiency of a central air conditioner. Provided by the manufacturer in standard product information, the SEER is derived by dividing the total BTUs of energy produced over a normal cooling season by the total kilowatt hours of electricity consumed. Air conditioners manufactured today have SEER ratings ranging from 13 to 24, with the higher number representing the greatest efficiency. Higher SEER ratings generally imply higher upfront purchase expense, too. However, lifetime savings can easily offset increased initial investment. Your HVAC contractor can help you strike a balance between these two considerations.
