Choose the Correct SEER Rating

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is the unit by which air conditioning efficiency is measured. In the world of air conditioning, the higher the SEER, the better the efficiency, and the lower your energy costs. Higher efficiency (SEER) systems will normally cost more to purchase than lower efficiency systems, but cost substantially less to operate over time.

As a general rule if you intend to remain in the property where you will install the system purchased for less than 5 years, a 13 or 14 SEER option may be your best choice from a strict return on investment standpoint. If you feel you will be in the property between 5 and 10 years, a 15 or 16 SEER may be your best choice.

If you intend to occupy the home where you will install the system for more than 10 years, a higher rating in the 16 -18 SEER range should be given careful consideration, depending on your purchasing ability and budget.
