It's safe to say that even with the random 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 happen next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally turns to being a consistent 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 noted by a rating that informs you of the type of efficiency expected 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 team member 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 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 take a closer look at it, the higher 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 goes in to your decision in picking 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 be certain that you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
