It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, the majority 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 be sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally switches to being a reliable temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the system itself. One of the most important tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by 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, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you determine 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 created today. 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 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 comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that goes in to your decision in buying 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.
