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 guess what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally turns to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the product itself. One of the most important tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is recognized as a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you learn 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 out there now. What that means 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 technician can help you grasp the concept of 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 factors 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 severely 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.
