Some of the more advanced A/C systems can even go as high as 27, but you’ll find those particular cooling systems are extremely costly
If you’re looking to get yourself a new air conditioner, it’s important to know about the SEER ratings. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio which is basically the cooling output in the summer months divided by the energy used in watt hours. You can actually think of it like the miles per gallon rating of a car. The better the SEER rating, the more comfort you get for a lower cost on your energy bills. So of course, you want to go for a high SEER rating based on what you can afford. You will want to compare the different cooling systems so you know you’re making a good investment. Most A/C systems will go from a minimum SEER rating of 13 all the way up to 22. Some of the more advanced A/C systems can even go as high as 27, but you’ll find those particular cooling systems are extremely costly. It’s like when you’re shopping for a big screen TV, if you want those extra inches added to the size, you could be paying thousands of dollars for what doesn’t seem like a lot, but you are ultimately getting a larger TV. With an extremely high SEER rating, your energy bills will be better than ever before, but of course you have to consider numerous energy saving tips if you want to get the most out of your new cooling system. You should always remember to keep the property insulated properly, get regular system maintenance, and never forget to change your air filters! The SEER rating won’t do any good if you aren’t keeping on top of the maintenance.
