It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess 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 switches to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the system itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is denoted as a rating that tells you what type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're uncertain 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 likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What it means for you is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech 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 picking a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly inhibit the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
