Types of Air Conditioners
There are many different efficiency levels and cooling capacities or “tonnage” of air conditioners available today, but all the different units can be divided into three distinct major types or categories; single stage, two stages and variable speed units.
Efficiency or SEER
The efficiency or SEER rating of an air conditioner refers to how much electricity that particular unit will consume to keep you cool in a season. SEER is an abbreviation for “seasonal energy efficiency ratio” and it tells you how much electricity an air conditioner will consume over a typical season. The higher the SEER the less electricity a unit consumes in a season.
Starting in 2007, the minimum SEER rating became 13. Before this, the efficiency levels went all the way down to 6 SEER or less. The actual savings every SEER number affords you varies, but on the average it is between 5 and 10 percent savings per larger number SEER selected.
