What SEER Means and How It Affects Air Conditioner’s Cost

SEER is an abbreviation for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Since air conditioners work harder and are less efficient when the weather is very hot, a seasonal rating is the best way to measure overall efficiency and provide an estimate of how much it will cost to cool your home each year. A 13 SEER system is much more efficient than central AC units from just a decade or two ago, and will save you plenty over an old 8 or 11 SEER system. Units with SEER Ratings of 20 or more provide maximum savings. Those maximum savings, though, come at a considerably higher initial price for the equipment.

Receive Maximum Rebates and Tax Credits

Some HVAC manufacturers, such as Carrier, encourage homeowners to purchase high-efficiency products by offering manufacturer rebates. Some utilities and energy companies also offer rebates for installing air conditioning products with high SEER ratings so their customers can save energy over the long term. If you choose to install a geothermal heat pump, you may qualify for federal or state tax credits. Your local dealer will help you choose the right products to maximize your savings.
