Seasonal efficiency is a new way of measuring the true energy efficiency of heating and cooling technology, over an entire year. This new measure gives a more realistic indication of the energy efficiency and environmental impact of a system.
- The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) value in cooling
- The Seasonal Coefficient of Performance (SCOP) value in heating
The new seasonal ratings reflect a heat pump’s true energy consumption, based on its energy efficiency over an entire year. SEER and SCOP measure annual energy consumption and efficiency in typical day-to-day use. In the longer term, they take into account temperature fluctuations and standby periods to give a clear and reliable indication of the typical energy efficiency over an entire heating or cooling season.
Daikin products comply with the ErP because they are designed for seasonal efficiency. As a result, they are more energy efficient and therefore emit fewer CO2 emissions. Daikin has a full range of air conditioning products optimised for the new seasonal efficiency ratings.
