The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure used to evaluate the effectiveness of air conditioners and heat pumps in cooling a home. It is calculated by dividing the cooling power of an air conditioner in BTUs by its electricity consumption in kilowatts. Generally, the SEER rating ranges from 13 to 23, with higher numbers indicating greater energy efficiency. The Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) is another metric used to measure the cooling power of an air conditioner. Unlike the SEER rating, which is based on a seasonal average, the EER is calculated under specific test conditions that represent the maximum load during the hottest times of the year.
