It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally switches to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some 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 informs you of the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure 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 likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What it boils down to is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is 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 team member 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 goes in to your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely impact 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.
