So What Does the SEER Rating of an AC system Mean?

SEER stands for "Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio," and it is a measure of the cooling output of an air conditioning system over a typical cooling season, divided by the amount of energy consumed in watt-hours. The SEER rating is a measure of an air conditioning system's efficiency, and it is determined by dividing the system's cooling output in BTUs (British Thermal Units) by the amount of energy it consumes in watt-hours during a typical cooling season.

A higher SEER rating indicates a more energy-efficient air conditioning system, and this can translate to lower energy bills over the long term. The minimum SEER rating for air conditioning systems sold in the United States is 14, but some units can have SEER ratings as high as 28.

When considering a new air conditioning system, it's important to keep in mind that higher SEER ratings can come with a higher upfront cost. However, investing in a more efficient system can save money on energy bills over time and also reduce your carbon footprint.

Variable-Capacity AC Compressor

The Variable-capacity compressor is currently our most efficient and quietest option. It can operate at various speeds depending on the cooling requirements, ranging from 35-100%. Compared to two-stage systems, it offers a wider range of speeds, enabling the air conditioning to maintain lower speeds for longer durations while providing the option for higher speeds when the outdoor temperature rises. As a result, variable-speed AC systems run continuously without frequent on/off cycles and only at the required speed to keep you comfortable, making them the most energy-efficient among the three types AC systems.

Two-Stage / Multi Stage AC Compressor

The two-stage AC compressor operates at two levels: high for extremely hot summer days and low for milder summer days. With a two-stage AC unit, you essentially get two units for the price of one. On days with moderate temperatures, the compressor initially runs at 70%, and if it fails to cool the house to the desired level, it moves to 100%. Since the low setting is adequate for cooling homes 80% of the time, a two-stage unit operates for more extended periods, resulting in a more uniform indoor air temperature. Compared to a single-stage compressor, the two-stage compressor is more efficient because it doesn't cycle on and off as frequently, reducing wear and tear. Moreover, the two-stage system removes twice as much humidity as the single-stage system because it operates at the lower level for an extended period.

Single-Stage AC Compressor

A single-stage AC compressor functions at a constant full-cold speed, with the thermostat controlling the home's temperature by turning the AC system and compressor on and off. In Michigan, most homes with central air conditioning use a single-stage compressor, which has been the standard for several decades. The latest single-stage models feature cutting-edge technology, making them considerably more energy-efficient than their older counterparts, which had much lower SEER ratings.
