When looking for the right air conditioner or heat pump, pay close attention to the SEER rating of each unit. We have Trane central air conditioners are available up to 21.00 SEER, and heat pumps go as high as 20.00 SEER. Gas furnaces are rated based on the percentage of the natural gas is burned on average (AFUE); Trane gas furnace efficiency can be as high as 97.3% AFUE.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency.
