It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, the majority of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being a reliable temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is recognized as a rating that tells you what type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you learn it's rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you understand SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what you can get from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
