It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make certain 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 bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most noteworthy 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 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 created today. What it boils down to is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that's 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 tech 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 is involved in 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 certain that you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
