Looking to get a new HVAC unit? You’ll want to understand a thing called “SEER” and how it plays a role in your system!
Rheem Pro Partner David Mossor explains how to better understand your SEER rating. 

“SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It’s basically a government rating on the efficiency of an AC system. It’s important because it deals with energy consumption, and the cost of your monthly bills. The less you have to pay for electricity to cool your house, the better. The minimum government efficiency in the area is 14-SEER. Moving up to the higher SEER units, they are going to give you more comfort."

More from Rheem Pro Partners:

"It’s not only a money savings thing, but a comfort thing. As far as SEER and efficiency, when you move to a higher SEER systems it’s going to be the comfort in your home, and that’s the biggest thing. Again, it’s not so much the money savings, but the comfort of your home.”
