First off, let’s actually define what we’re talking about here. When a cooling system is called high-efficiency, the term is directly referring to a higher than average SEER rating. The SEER, put simply, is the total cooling output of your system divided by its energy input (or usage). Basically, the higher the SEER, the more efficient your system is at doing its job, which confers quite a few big benefits.
Saying your system is highly efficient doesn’t really tell you much about what that means for you, so let’s look at how higher efficiency actually impacts you. More efficiency directly translates to:
Think that all sounds pretty good? We do, too, and that’s not even the end of it! There are loads of great small benefits too, including getting away from R-22 (modern high-efficiency systems use R-410a, a safer refrigerant), and added options like updated, programmable thermostats.
