The chart below helps determine your likely efficiency of your old air conditioner

Your actual air conditioner efficiency may be higher or lower but over time, nearly all air conditioners drop in efficiency.

What is the SEER Rating? SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.

The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the air conditioner will be. Naturally more efficient air conditioners have lower operating costs.
