It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally turns to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most important 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 can expect out of your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member can help you determine 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 it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you understand SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that factors in to 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 greatly impact 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.
