What Is Energy Star®?

If your goal is to improve your home's efficiency, you'll want to look at HVAC systems with an ENERGY STAR® rating, which was created in 1992 by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency. When a product has an ENERGY STAR® rating, it has met federal regulations regarding energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions, and sustainability.


HVAC systems with this label have been proven to be up to 20% more efficient than other comparable units, reducing your monthly bills. With regular maintenance and repair, the unit will pay for itself overtime.


SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, a rating that shows you how efficient a unit can be. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient your unit will be, and more expensive.


EER stands for Energy Efficiency Ratio, measuring HVAC performance on a smaller scale than SEER.


To maximize your monthly savings, choose HVAC products with a SEER rating of 14.5 or higher. A single HVAC model should have an EER of 11, and split-systems should be at 12 or higher. However, these numbers are the minimum for an ENERGY STAR® label.
