What is SEER? The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating measures cooling performance on air conditioners and heat pumps. As ratings increase, so does unit efficiency. Heat pumps have an additional rating called Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. HSPF measures the average number of Btuhs of heat delivered for every Watt-hour of electricity used by the heat pump over the heating season. Heat Pumps work similar to a conventional air conditioner with one big exception; they also provide heat in the winter. You can save 30 to 60% on energy usage during the winter months by switching to a heat pump. Our air conditioners and heat pumps starts out at 13 SEER and go up to 18 SEER.
Single-Stage vs. Two-Stage Unlike single-stage units that run at full capacity all of the time, the two-stage feature operates the unit at lower capacity during mild temperatures. This feature reduces wear and tear on the unit and promotes a long life cycle.
