SEER, EER Ratios And HSPF Measurements

SEER, EER Ratios And HSPF Measurements

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER)

SEER is most commonly used to measure the efficiency of a central air conditioner.  SEER measures how efficiently a cooling system will operate over an entire season.  The higher the SEER, the more efficient the system.

Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)

EER is a measure of how efficiently a cooling system will operate when the outdoor temperature is at a specific level (95°F).  The higher the EER, the more efficient the system.

Heat Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF)

HSPF is the most commonly used measure of a heat pumps heating efficiency.  The higher the HSPF, the more efficient the heat pump.
