What is SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and why does it matter with heat pumps?
Upgrading your home with energy-efficient systems like heat pumps saves you money on electricity bills while minimizing carbon emissions. And, incentive and rebate programs make the decision to tap into the financial and environmental benefits of heat pumps even simpler.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rates the efficiency of a cooling system. SEER ratings help us to understand the amount of energy (and money) a specific system requires to cool a space effectively and also comfortably. The higher the SEER ratio, the less electricity the system needs to keep a home at its desired temperature.
Products with the ENERGY STAR label are certified to have met strict energy efficiency guidelines, which include having a higher SEER rating.
City of Statesville Electric residential customers are also eligible for a $150 rebate, when a new, solely electric water heater is installed. The unit must be an tanked water heater that holds a minimum of thirty (30) gallons. Tankless water heaters are not applicable.
