Why is air conditioning efficiency measured in SEER?



  1. 0 Votes

    SEER is a unit of measurement designed to calculate the dividend of the total cooling output of the system against the system’s total electricity input.  Essentially: [total cooling output]/[total electricity input] = SEER  It’s used to measure the efficiency of a cooling system in a single, understandable unit, so that a air conditioning specialist can make adjustments in order to maximize said efficiency.

    SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) Ratings have been in place in the United States for the past 20 years, though the rating system has held several different names. This is determined by the number of BTUs of cooling per watt-hour are generated by the device. So, by definition, SEER ratings determine the product’s efficiency. The SEER ratings were put in place by the EPA to establish environmental accountability within the air conditioner industry.
