What does S.E.E.R. mean?

In this video, Matt is here to talk about S.E.E.R. ratings.

S.E.E.R. stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, which is similar to the miles per gallon rating on a car. For instance, a Hummer gets very low gas mileage because it does not run very efficiently. In contrast, a Honda Fit gets great gas mileage, because it is extremely efficient.

A Hummer is going to be like a 14 S.E.E.R. on an air conditioner, and your Honda Fit is going to be your 18 and 20 S.E.E.R. The higher the S.E.E.R. rating, the more energy-efficient your unit is.

It might cost a little bit more to get a higher efficiency unit, but it will pay itself off in the future.

If you have any questions about S.E.E.R. ratings or how efficient your unit is, please give us a call at (469) 247-3234.
