SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. SEER is a rating system that was devised to provide a way to determine the relative operating cost of an air conditioning system or to compare the energy efficiency of air-conditioning systems. The SEER rating is calculated by dividing the cooling output during a complete cooling season by the energy used to achieve that cooling.
