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 constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system itself. One of the most noteworthy tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you'll get 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 tech 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 available today. What that means is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that's 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 greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician 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 continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to make sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
