Shopping for a new air conditioner can be overwhelming—it’s a financial investment that will affect the comfort in your home for years to come. There are so many factors to consider, including the SEER rating and how it will affect the overall price of a new air conditioner.
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is how efficiency is measured in air conditioners—a higher SEER rating correlates to a more efficient system. Advances in technology have led to better coils, compressors and fans that have drastically reduced the amount of energy required to keep a home cool and comfortable.
In most cases, an air conditioner with a high SEER rating will be more expensive than an air conditioner with a lower SEER rating. However, a more efficient AC system will use less energy to run, lowering monthly energy bills. With air conditioners lasting approximately 10 to 15 years, you could see a significant amount of yearly savings from an AC system with a high SEER rating. In addition, as electricity prices continue to rise, you’ll see even more significant savings on your monthly hydro bill.
