It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, the majority of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to take place 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 constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system itself. One of the most noteworthy 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 you can expect out of your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure 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 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 ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the higher 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 understand 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 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 clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
