So What Does the SEER Rating of an AC system Mean?

SEER stands for "Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio," and it is a measure of the cooling output of an air conditioning system over a typical cooling season, divided by the amount of energy consumed in watt-hours. season.

Variable-Capacity AC Compressor

The Variable-capacity compressor also called Variable Speed is currently our most efficient and quietest option. It can operate at various speeds depending on the cooling requirements, ranging from 35-100%. Compared to two-stage systems, it offers a wider range of speeds, enabling the air conditioning to maintain lower speeds for longer durations while providing the option for higher speeds when the outdoor temperature rises. As a result, variable-speed AC systems run continuously without frequent on/off cycles and only at the required speed to keep you comfortable, making them the most energy-efficient among the three types of AC systems.

Two-Stage / Multi Stage AC Compressor

The two-stage AC compressor operates at two levels: high for extremely hot summer days and low for milder summer days. With a two-stage AC unit, you essentially get two units for the price of one. On days with moderate temperatures, the compressor initially runs at 70%, and if it fails to cool the house to the desired level, it moves to 100%. Since the low setting is adequate for cooling homes 80% of the time, a two-stage unit operates for more extended periods, resulting in a more uniform indoor air temperature. Compared to a single-stage compressor, the two-stage compressor is more efficient because it doesn't cycle on and off as frequently, reducing wear and tear. Moreover, the two-stage system removes twice as much humidity as the single-stage system because it operates at the lower level for an extended period.

Single-Stage AC Compressor

A single-stage AC compressor functions at a constant full-cold speed, with the thermostat controlling the home's temperature by turning the AC system and compressor on and off. In Ohio, most homes with central air conditioning use a single-stage compressor, which has been the standard for several decades. The latest single-stage models feature cutting-edge technology, making them considerably more energy-efficient than their older counterparts, which had much lower SEER ratings.
