SEER to SEER2 Conversion

As you may know, the DOE has changed the testing procedure used to rate the efficiency of HVAC equipment to be more representative of installations in today’s homes. Equipment will now be rated according to SEER2. The DOE is also raising the minimum standards for efficiency for both straight cool and heat pump products. While it varies between equipment type, minimum efficiencies are increasing about 7-10% or 1 SEER point.

The chart to the right illustrates the relative comparison of today’s SEER and the new SEER2 ratings.


Starting January 1, 2023, INSTALLATIONS of RESIDENTIAL STRAIGHT COOL SPLIT PRODUCT must meet the new SEER2 requirements. Inventory of existing residential straight cool split products must be sold and installed prior to this date. Tropic Supply started stocking SEER2-rated residential straight cool product in September of 2022 to ensure a smooth transition.

The sale and installation of RESIDENTIAL HEAT PUMP SPLIT PRODUCT AND ALL RESIDENTIAL PACKAGE UNITS will be regulated based on the DATE OF MANUFACTURE. As a result, Tropic Supply will continue to stock current models of residential heat pump split systems AND residential package units through the first quarter of 2023. New SEER2 rated residential heat pump splits and package units will start to arrive in the first and second quarter of 2023 to ensure a smooth transition.
