Enter the capacity of the air conditioner in Btuh You can enter nominal or actual.  Btuh  Btuh
Enter the nameplate SEER when new This is the theoretical SEER, based on the limited test laboratory test points required for product certification.  SEER   SEER
Estimate the reduction in SEER due to installation & performance degradation over time Rarely will an air conditioner operate in the field at the nameplate efficiency rating. Lab conditions are ideal. Field conditions are not. Lab tests are based on a limited number of repeatable test points. Field conditions run the gamut of operating conditions. Lab installations are perfect by design. Field installations typically fall very short of perfection. Lab test feature new equipment. In the field equipment performance degrades over time (and without maintenance degrades faster and farther). Thus, average operating SEER always falls short of lab conditions when new and becomes worse with time. Estimate the SEER reduction.  SEER   SEER
Operating SEER This is the actual estimated operating SEER.  SEER   SEER
Demand This demand is the watts of electricity drawn by the air conditioner when on.  Watts   Watts
Enter Cooling Load Hours The cooling load hours is the number of hours an air conditioner will normally run over the course of a year for a geographical area.  Hours   Hours
Annual Energy Consumption The annual energy consumption is the amount of electricity consumed by the air conditioner over a year's time.  kWh   kWh
Emissions Factor The emissions factor is supplied by the EPA and represents a blended average of the carbon content resulting in electricity generation nationwide.
