What is SEER?
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is a ratio of the amount of cooling produced (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used. In layman’s terms, a SEER rating is an efficiency marker. The higher the SEER rating the more efficient the system operates which results in less energy consumption and a saving on your power bill.
What is MERV?
MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) was developed by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioner Engineers. Essentially, the higher the MERV rating the more efficient the filter will be in trapping airborne particles.
