As of 2006, all newly manufactured central air conditioners and heat pumps must achieve a minimum SEER of 13. Many units damaged in the storm were installed prior to 2006 and thus are likely to be less efficient than 13 SEER. If a unit is rated at less than 13 SEER, both the indoor and outdoor units must be replaced with a system that is designed to work together efficiently. In fact, improperly matched indoor and outdoor units can create undue stress on a cooling system, dramatically reducing efficiency (such systems are at least 30 percent less efficient) and resulting in an unnecessary, premature failure. Furthermore, when installing a new system that uses a non-ozone depleting hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant (typically R-410A), the indoor and outdoor units must be properly matched or the system will prematurely fail.
