What is a SEER rating?

A SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) is a rating given to AC equipment to help the consumer gauge the efficiency of the unit. How much it helps you depends on how much you use your equipment. If you are the type that sets their thermostat at 80-85 during the summer and never touch it then our suggestion would be that your needs are low and the most cost efficient system for you is a lower SEER rating.
