Centrex should be able to confirm the EER if you inquire.

Air Conditioner SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


Energy consumption for home air conditioning accounts for almost 5% of all the electricity produced in the USA. Energy Policy Act mandates minimum energy efficiency standards for commercial buildings, using research and standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Energy Star qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models, which makes them about 14% more efficient than standard models. Energy efficiency specialists with certified training on retrofits and energy savings on both residential and light commercial units may enable you to save up to 50 percent on your air conditioning bills with the use of a high efficiency energy system. Substantial energy savings can be obtained from more efficient systems.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations.

The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. SEER is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your unit. Therefore you will realize greater energy savings. The higher efficiency your product, the lower your long-term energy costs will be. Both central AC and air source heat pumps are rated according to seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

Before you consider upgrading your cooling equipment, the cheapest way to save money and energy from cooling is to reduce the need for mechanical air conditioning in the first place. Ask your contractor about a variable speed air handler, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Also, because ducts are often responsible for a lot of wasted energy, make sure you hire a contractor who knows about high-efficiency installations. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an Energy Star qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.

I have purchased lenovo g570 laptop and installed windows xp in it but i m unable to install audio drivers in it. i have downloaded the audio from the website, while installing it is showing the message...


Sounds like you've downloaded the wrong driver. Make sure you download the driver that is for your operating system. If you purchased the lenovo and installed windows XP, what did it have on it when you purchased it, because all systems come with an operating system, unless you bought if from a jack leg or second hand where they wiped it.

My Split system Centrex CTAR60GW turns off about 10 minutes of cooling, the actual unit flashes on the timer button, have cleaned it replaced batteries and had 4 technicians out to have a look all of which...


Dear friend. the timer problem is very common. Remove battery from remote and also remove power to unit. Again plug power on unit and start with remote and try to cancel the timer on and off. Press set.
And also cool setting must be minimum 3 degree less than room temperature. Helpful advise?

I have a Centrex air keeps tripping breaker


The first thing I would check is the outdoor unit coil and see if it is restricted(dirty). If that is the case then you can wash it off with water(make sure you shut the power off to the unit first). If the outdoor coil is restricted and has little air flow thru it ,it can't get rid of the heat from the space and the compressor will draw over amperage and trip the breaker.
The next thing to check is if the outdoor fan is running. If the fan doesn't run it is the same as the restricted coil, it can't get rid of the heat from the coil. Check these things first then we can go from there! Thanks!!

My air cond is leaking water inside but works perfectly


If the unit is newer, there is a PVC male adapter that screws into the condensate pan. Typically they don't come loose unless it has been stepped on acidentally (attic install). The main condensate drain sounds like it is clogged. You can use compressed air to blow it out or try and run a small snake through it.

Centrex airconditioner


I bought a house with one already installed. Found that it isn't switching from 'hot' to 'cold' After time the unit will beep and flash LED's on the unit itself and then switch off. Rather handy on 40 degree days. Good luck sourcing parts for the unit as the company have gone bust. I do know an honest working fellow that installs units - he suggests that Kelvernator are a no go, Mitsubishi, Panasonic are the ones to look at. Pay the extra cash for a brand name, they're less likely to go bust for a start, and if there is a problem, parts are readily available.
