A straight cool A/C is one that includes a cooling cycle only. A gas, oil or electric strip heater may be included, but it does not have a separate heating cycle. This is a less expensive system compared to others that have a heating cycle, and it’s perfect for mild winters.
A heat pump system provides a cooling cycle during the summer and a heating cycle during the winter. May cost slightly more than a straight cool system to purchase.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is a measure of an A/C’s average annual cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit.
