The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 14, 15 or 16. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. This is tech-speak for how energy efficient the products are.
In 2023, “SEER2” was introduced, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio 2. Specifically, SEER2 is the total heat removed from the conditioned space during the annual cooling season. –The SEER2 Guide. The minimum SEER rating is being raised on a regional basis nationwide. SEER for most northern states will be raised to 14 with SEER2 at 13.4. In southern states, the minimum SEER rating will be 15 with SEER2 of 14.3.
Each split system cooling unit has a nominal SEER rating. This rating can be increased with the upgrade of the same series indoor unit. The SEER rating of a system is derived based on the combination of equipment installed in the home. The outdoor equipment (heat pump or air conditioner), as well as the indoor equipment (evaporator coil and furnace, or air handler), play a vital role in the total rating.
HVAC maintenance is probably not at the top of your to-do list. However, performing regular maintenance on your system can help it last longer and save you costly repairs in the future. We make it easy to keep your system in tip-top shape. Preventative maintenance on your HVAC system can help avoid system breakdowns and keep equipment running efficiently.
A few other reasons HVAC inspections are highly recommended:
At least twice a year heat pumps, furnaces, boilers, mini splits, and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. These unit inspections should include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils, line kits and refrigerant lines.

Standard filters are built to keep your system and ductwork clean. However, there are filters that will also improve indoor air quality. These filters, called media filters, improve dust and particle removal from the air. There are different media filters that can remove things like airborne viruses, and your local TemperaturePro expert can explain the benefits of the many different filters out there.
We recommend you replace your disposable filters, or clean your washable filters, at least once a month.
Under the standard factory warranty, our brands cover parts that fail during the warranty period due to defects in the part. Many manufacturers require you to register your system to be eligible for the extended parts warranty. New systems come with a 1-year labor warranty and additional years of coverage can be purchased. A warranty certificate is included with the homeowner information packet, and is specific to the model numbers, serial numbers and installation dates of specific products. Can’t find your warranty certificate? No worries! Your local TemperaturePro can provide you with your warranty information upon request.
