The importance is the the MERV. What is MERV? This measures the filters effectiveness. MERV stands for the minimum efficiency reporting value. Most filters are labeled with a MERV rating number, which measures a filter's ability to trap particles ranging in size from 3 to 10 microns.

Freon Facts

R-22 is claimed to be destructive to the ozone layer. The government has mandated that in 2010, manufacturers will not be able to manufacture any more systems using R-22.

About SEER

SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio. Simply stated, this is the electrical efficiency of your air conditioning system. Today we have 14 SEER, 16 SEER and even up to 20 SEER systems on the market. The higher the SEER rating, the less electricity the system uses, and the lower the utility bill. As of January 2006, manufacturers will not be able to produce anything less than 13 SEER. Obviously, the higher the SEER rating, the more expensive the system costs up front.
