It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, a lot 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 sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner 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 expected from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you figure out 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 created today. What that means is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the better 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 picking a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely affect 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.
