What does the SEER rating on air conditioning units mean?

SEER stands for “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio”. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy you save. If you have a 10 SEER system and upgrade to a 14 SEER system, you will save about 30 percent on your operating costs.

How is the annual cost of electric energy for an air conditioner calculated?

Here is a brief explanation of SEER ratings and energy consumption in your house – and how these translate to costs:

Electric power is measured in kilowatts (kW). Electric energy is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). For example, if an electric load that draws 1.5 kW of electric power is operated for 8 hours, it uses 12 kWh of electric energy. In the United States, a residential electric customer is charged based on the amount of electric energy he or she uses. A customer’s utility bill will state the amount of electric energy in kWh for the past month and the cost of the electric energy per kWh.

Air conditioner sizes are often given as “tons” of cooling. One ton of cooling equals 12,000 BTU/h (3.5 kW). One ton of cooling equals the amount of power that needs to be applied continuously over a 24 hour period to melt 1 ton of ice. Use the following formula to calculate your annual operating costs:

Unit size, BTU/h × hours per year, h × energy cost, $/kWh ÷ SEER, BTU/Wh ÷ 1000 kW/W

Example 1:

What is the annual cost of electric energy consumed by a 72,000 BTU/h (21 kW) (6 ton) air conditioning unit that operates for 1,000 hours per year, with a SEER rating of 10, and an electric energy cost of $0.12 per kWh?

(72,000 BTU/h) × (1000 h) × ($0.12/kWh) ÷ (10 BTU/Wh) ÷ (1000 kW/W) = $864

Example 2:

A residence near Chicago has an air conditioner with a cooling capacity of 4 tons and a SEER rating of 10. The unit is operated 120 days each year for 8 hours per day. The electric energy cost is $0.10 per kWh. What is the annual cost of the electric energy required to operate the air conditioner?

First, we must convert tons of cooling to BTU/h.

(4 tons) × (12,000 BTU/h/ton) = 48,000 Btu/h

The annual cost of the electric energy is:

(48,000 Btu/h) × (960 h/year) × ($0.10/kWh) ÷ (10 BTU/Wh) ÷ (1000 kW/W) = $461
