How do I increase efficiency? SEER is Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (see image above) The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit is. There are several factors that increase a unit’s SEER Rating. Adding a “variable speed” blower motor increases the SEER. Adding a 2-stage compressor increases the SEER. What is a 2-stage compressor? Let’s say you have a 5 ton system... A 2-stage compressor is a rotary compressor that spins at a medium and at a high speed.

Heat from your indoor air is absorbed by the frozen coil’s Freon thus, 'cold air' output is the result. In order to be sure if you have the right-sized equipment for your home, a "Manual J” heat load calculation can be performed. A "Manual J” heat load calculation determines the amount of heat your home’s "taking on" and how many “tons” [...]
