Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), is most commonly used to measure the efficiency of a central air conditioner operating over an entire cooling season. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the system.

Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) is a measure of how efficiently a cooling system will operate when the outdoor temperature is at a specific level (95°F). The higher the EER, the more efficient the system.
