HVAC Terminology & Abbreviations You Need To Know
What is Seer ?
Seer stands for Seasonal Energy efficiency
When you’re shopping for AC units, a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, SEER rating, helps you determine an air conditioner’s efficiency. The higher the unit’s SEER rating, the more energy-efficient it is. For a SEER definition, think about it like this: SEER is the ratio of cooling produced in BTUs divided by the watts of electricity used.
What are BTUs/hour?
Btu stands for British Thermal Unit.
If you’re wondering about the BTU meaning, it’s first helpful to know that BTU stands for British Thermal Unit. BTUs are used to measure energy in relation to heat. When it comes to your AC or heater, the BTU rating tells you how powerful your unit is. When you see 6,000 BTUs/hour, this means that a 6,000 BTU heater can produce 6,000 BTUs of energy over the course of an hour.
what is IAQ?
Seer stands for Indoor Air Quality
IAQ stands for indoor air quality, which is the air quality within and around buildings and structures. IAQ impacts the health and comfort of building occupants. For IAQ testing, click here. You can also learn more about improving your home’s IAQ for babies and children.
What Is Two-Stage Cooling?
Two-stage cooling means the air conditioner or heat pump has a compressor with two levels of operation: high for hot summer days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household-cooling demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and produces more even temperatures.
what is EER?
The best EER definition to know is that EER is the ratio of cooling capacity to the power input (in watts). An air conditioner with a higher EER rating is more efficient.

Seer stands for Seasonal Energy efficiency
ENERGY STAR® is a program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designed to help consumers and businesses save money by choosing energy-efficient products and technologies. Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment with the ENERGY STAR® label meets or exceeds federal guidelines for energy-efficient performance. An ENERGY STAR®-certified AC unit could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.
R-410A was invented and patented by Allied Signal (now Honeywell) in 1991. Other producers around the world have been licensed to manufacture and sell R-410A, but Honeywell continues to be the leader in capacity and sales. R-410A was successfully commercialized in the air conditioning segment by a combined effort of Carrier Corporation, Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., Copeland Scroll Compressors (a division of Emerson Electric Company), and Allied Signal. Carrier Corporation was the first company to introduce an R-410A-based residential air conditioning unit into the market in 1996 and holds the trademark "Puron".
All-in-one Heating and Air Conditioning System
During warmer months, a heat pump works as a normal air conditioner. It extracts heat from inside the home and transfers it to the outdoor air. In colder weather, however, the process reverses—the unit collects heat from the outdoor air and transferring it inside your home.
What Is Two-Stage Heating?
Two-stage heating means the furnace has two levels of heat output: high for cold winter days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household heating demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and provides more even heat distribution.
