It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to occur next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally switches to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of 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 informs you of the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure 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 possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What that means is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend 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 goes in to your decision in buying a new air conditioner or continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically inhibit the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
