You rely on your HVAC system, particularly in the winter and summer, to keep your Greensboro, North Carolina home at a consistent, comfortable temperature. While your system might do its best, deficient insulation, air leakage, and other issues can result in a home that lacks optimum comfort and temperature regulation on a day-to-day basis. Not only that, but these problems can also lead to higher-than-necessary electric bills in every season.

The Truth about SEER Ratings for HVAC Systems
Here at Energy Works, we often have clients ask us what a SEER rating is and what makes a good rating when assessing current HVAC equipment or purchasing a new system. While some companies may make their entire recommendation based on the SEER rating, we have built our reputation on providing personalized solutions that go beyond one aspect to gauge energy efficiency.
SEER stands for “seasonal energy efficiency ratio.” It is important to note that this is developed using a constant indoor temperature with a variety of outdoor temperatures that would occur in a typical summer season. When you throw in different homes, different locations, and seasonal variances, what you actually experience will be different. Therefore, when you see a SEER rating, you should look at it in terms of being the maximum efficiency the unit can achieve. For example, a 20 SEER rating is interpreted as “up to 20 SEER” rather than always providing that level.
This variance is also why you should never buy into any claims that your new HVAC system will pay for itself in a set number of years. Only an estimate can be accurately given, and even that can be far off if weather conditions reach extremes, you fail to keep up with maintenance, or something else interferes with the performance of your HVAC system.
With all that said, when we conduct an energy assessment and make recommendations for energy efficiency, we look at the broad picture, so you can lower your power bill with realistic expectations. You can move toward energy efficiency with our help, and we won’t let you be fooled by looking at just the SEER rating.
