It's safe to say that even with the crazy 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 occur next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally flips the switch to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of 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 informs you of the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What it boils down to is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's 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 better chance you have for 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 the difference is with newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that goes 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 affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
