It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, the majority of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to occur 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 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 noted by a rating that informs you of the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're not sure 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What that means is that with every passing winter 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 better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech 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 buying a new air conditioner or continuing 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 sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
