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 determine what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service done 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 noted by a rating that informs you of the type of efficiency expected from 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 figure out 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 out there now. What it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you comprehend 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 buying a new air conditioner or sticking to 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 make sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
