The higher the SEER rating, the better the Central Air Conditioner will function and the greater your savings will be
SEER: Air Conditioners are measured in SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating) and is similar to EER (energy efficiency rating) except that it measures the average efficiency over a season, rather than on a single test. A minimum SEER rating is 13, while many units boast of a 21 SEER or higher.

What Does Proper Sizing Mean?
Proper sizing is extremely important because going too small or too big has a big impact on your home comfort. Bigger is not better and will cost you more money up front and more money to operate, not to mention the comfort issues it will create by not being sized correctly. And on the other hand, an Air Conditioner that is too small will lack the ability to give you the comfort you desire.
