Alphachooser's list showing the newest energy-efficient air conditioners includes only air conditioners that obey to these criteria:

  • They must have an energy-efficiency ratio (EER) of 11 or above, which is kind of rare, and a similar combined energy-efficiency ratio (CEER)
  • They may, but do not necessarily have to be Energy-Star accredited
  • When not specified, Energy Star efficiency ratings specified in annual cost are generally based on a 12 cents per Kwh electricty rate and 8-hour-per-day use over 3 months)
