    Cool SEER rating from 1998 Comfortmaker?

    Does anyone now what my SEER rating on my 1998 comfortmaker central air unit might be?

    There are 2 model #'s on the unit: acs042a2c1 & fba042gc1

    Mfr # nacs042a2c1

    serial# l982363817

    I'm thinking about upgrading to a new central air unit and want to know what type of saving I might be able to get with a new unit (based off the seer ratings). Only to give me a rough idea... I live in the midwest.

    Thanks.

    Don't get hyped up on those SEER charts, every situation is different & nobody can predict what the savings might be for your particular situation & run-time hours per season.

    I personally liked the 10 & 12-seer equipment.
    When properly installed they worked well, especially in higher humidity climate areas.

    Unless you live in a climate with many A/C months & runtime hours; work on optimizing the operating efficiencies of what you have & reducing both the heating & cooling loads.

    Checking ductwork & airflow, reducing home air infiltration, (<-Both huge factors), adding foam & other insulation & attention to windows & doors will save energy use & utility costs the year-round. - Darrell
