A Higher EER Rating Means a More Efficient Unit and Lower Energy Bills
EER ratings are used to describe the energy efficiency of your AC unit and in the world of air conditioners, EER stands for Energy Efficiency Ratio. This number represents the ratio of cooling output over the energy required (as measured in wattage) by the AC unit. Cooling is represented in BTUs, or British thermal units, which is the amount of work it takes to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.
The Benefits of a Higher EER Rating
Units with higher EER ratings usually cost more to purchase. However, the benefits of a more efficient unit become apparent over time, because they typically involve lower energy costs and usage. This means that a unit with a higher EER rating will be more expensive than the other available units with lower EERs, but over time, that price difference will disappear.
