It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make sure 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 a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the product itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is recognized as a rating that tells you what type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're uncertain 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What it boils down to is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician 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 goes in to your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to make sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
