Energy Efficiency = Cost Savings

The energy efficiency of an air conditioner is compared using a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) value. The higher the rating, the less electricity you use and the lower your bill will be.

Compare the savings between your old air conditioner and a new air conditioner.* For example, if your old air conditioner is operating at 8-SEER, a new unit operating at 14-SEER could save you $102 a year:

~The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) is a measurement of the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner over the entire cooling season. The SEER is based on a climate with an average summer temperature of 28°C. The energy efficiency ratio (EER) is a measure of how much cooling effect is provided by the air conditioner for each unit of electrical energy that it consumes under steady-state operation. The higher the EER, the more efficient the unit.

*Actual savings will depend on the age, efficiency and condition of the unit being replaced.
