higher SEER HVAC

Why Make the Upgrade to Higher SEER HVAC?

If you’ve had the same HVAC system for over 5 years, its durability has been proven, but its efficiency is likely lacking. Despite the convenience of having a functional HVAC system you can rely on to perform properly in hot, humid Northwest Florida weather, the reality is you could be wasting tons of money every month to maintain a comfortable home. Lower your energy bill while experiencing more precise home comfort by upgrading to a higher SEER HVAC system.

What does SEER mean?

If you’re not familiar with many HVAC terms, you’re likely unsure of what SEER actually means. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is measured by the efficiency output of your HVAC system. The higher the SEER, the better efficiency of the system. For example, a system with a 20 SEER rating will be two times more efficient than a system with a 10 SEER rating. That means the energy being used by a 20 SEER HVAC system will be potentially half that of a 10 SEER system, and likewise, the energy bill will be reduced significantly. 

With many recent advances in technology, HVAC systems have improved tremendously in just the last 5 years. To reap the numerous benefits we’ll discuss below, upgrading to a higher SEER HVAC system is your best bet.

Benefits of Higher SEER HVAC Systems:

Energy Savings

One of the greatest benefits, and the reason why many people make the switch to an HVAC system with a higher SEER rating is the decrease in your energy bills. The savings ultimately depend on the difference in SEER between your old unit and your new system, but you can experience savings of up to 60%! You’ll begin to see the difference on your energy bills immediately after installation.

Humidity Control

Northwest Florida residents are no strangers to humidity, so we know how important it is to have a system that removes moisture from the air particularly well. With a higher SEER Variable Speed HVAC system, you’ll get precise humidity control throughout your whole home. By cycling longer at lower pressures, moisture is consistently removed from the air in your home, allowing fewer opportunities for fungal growth or other humidity-related issues. With lower humidity in your home, you may actually feel more comfortable at a higher temperature setting, therefore saving you even more money in energy costs.


Higher SEER HVAC systems are also more environmentally-friendly, meaning having one installed in your home will help reduce your carbon footprint. Newer air conditioners use safer refrigerants, making the installation of a new, high SEER AC system not only a financially responsible decision, but an environmentally conscious decision as well.

Increased Home Value

In a world where people are becoming more conscious about energy consumption, a higher SEER HVAC system in your home can become a unique selling point when the time comes to sell your home. Your high-efficiency comfort system will likely attract more potential buyers, and may even increase the value of your home.
