It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, a lot of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to occur next with the weather, it's important to make 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 denoted as a rating that tells you what type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you determine 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 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 higher 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 the difference is with newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in picking a new air conditioner or sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
