It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the product 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 uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you learn 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 created today. What that means 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 greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that goes 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 drastically affect 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.
