It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced 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 turns to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some 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 noted by a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make 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 possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What it means for you is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential 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 to expect from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that is involved in 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 drastically impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
