HVAC Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)
Aug 19, 2021 12:10 PM PST
SEER was developed by the manufacturers who make traditional, compressor-based products to make their air conditioners appear more energy saving than they actually are.
Because our air conditioners don’t have the traditional compressor, we don’t use the SEER rating.
The most accurate way to find out how much energy a consumer is saving is by using the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER).
The difference is that the EER measures for a controlled environment, whereas the SEER takes into account the seasonal changes. Meaning the value varies depending on the temperature and humidity of where the air conditioner is located, giving the consumer a wide range of inaccurate measurements.
However, it’s going to be a hard fight to switch the traditional air conditioning manufacturers from their old flat standards.
Until then, the best way for consumers to measure their energy savings is by simply looking at their cooling bill. With us, customers use up to 90% less in cooling consumption and that’s a rating you can trust to believe in.
