What is a SEER Rating?

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It's a metric used to determine how efficient an AC unit is by measuring how much cool air is created for each unit of electricity used. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is - likely saving you more money in energy costs.

The SEER rating is a critical factor when choosing a new unit. If you're trying to go more green, a higher SEER rating will reduce more waste and emissions compared to a lower rating unit. However, the higher the rating the more expensive the unit will be.

Think of SEER ratings as the MPG that your car gets. You can buy a car with high MPG, but how you drive it and where will vary in efficiency. The same is with high ranking SEER units.

When considering purchasing a new unit, it comes down to personal choice and values. We recommend exploring many different options. To determine the perfect choice for you, call 72 Degrees Comfort Company at 515-965-7272 or email us at
