Energy savings per seer rating — Remember especially in A/C there are a lot of factors. What is your desired temperature? How many months a year to do run your A/C? Do you enjoy the windows open whenever you can? Remember to factor these things into your decision when choosing the Seer rating on your new air conditioning system.
