At Anchor Heating & Air Company, we are often asked what does "SEER" and "ton" mean when describing an air conditioning equipment. Let's take a look at these two terms and what they mean in the air conditioning industry and for you.
WHAT DOES SEER MEAN? - SEER stands for "Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio". The higher the number, the greater the cooling efficiency. Government regulations require all new models to meet 13 SEER. Anchor Heating & Air Co. offers air conditioning systems all the way up to 19.5 SEER.
WHAT DOES SEER MEAN TO YOU? - With a high SEER, your air conditioning equipment will work with much more efficiency. This means it will last longer, have fewer breakdowns and even save you money on your monthly energy bills!
WHAT DOES TON MEAN IN THE AIR CONDITIONING INDUSTRY? - An air conditioning system removes heat that is expressed as "BTUs" (British Thermal Units). A one ton air conditioner will remove 12,000 BTUs of heat in an hour.
WHAT DOES TON MEAN FOR ME? - Determining the correct tonnage you require is important for making sure that your home is able to stay cool with minimal work from AC during the summer months. Every home and business is different, so give our experts a call for more information or to set up an appointment for a home evaluation.
