It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most of the country has at least had 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 be sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being a reliable 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 important 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 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 team member can help you figure out 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 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 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 team member can help you grasp the concept of 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 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 make sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
