It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the 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 certain 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 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 you'll get from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in 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 factors in to your decision in picking 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 be certain that you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
