Air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment. Higher SEER models generally cost more, but can easily make up the difference by reducing your home energy bills over the long run. We will sit down and help you figure out how that works.
Sizing an air conditioner isn’t just about cost or even the one SEER rating. Too small of an air conditioner won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. Too large of an air conditioner and the system will cycle more, wasting a lot of energy and putting strain on the compressor.
