As we get closer and closer to summer, many homeowners in the St. Louis area will begin paying more attention to their homes' cooling bills. If it seems like you're spending a lot on cooling costs, you naturally might be wondering, "Is my air conditioner energy efficient?"

Anything less than that is below the federally-required minimum for newly-manufactured air conditioners. The higher your SEER rating, the more efficient your system will be. But as you'll see below, SEER ratings only tell part of the story when it comes to the efficiency of your air conditioner.
