Choosing an air conditioning unit that’s the right size for your home can be a challenge. A unit too small will have to overwork to keep your home cool in the summer, increasing your electric bills. A unit too large can cost more upfront than necessary.
SEER ratings are helpful tools that match the right unit with the right home. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and it’s an important number when choosing a system. The minimum SEER rating, set by the federal government is 13, and the maximum rating possible is 25. Finding the right SEER rating for your home is based on square footage, energy efficiency of the home, time regularly spent in the residence, and the general climate of the area.
