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 occur 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 little bit of 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 noted by a rating that tells you what type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you determine it's rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is possibly 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 ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you understand 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 factors in to your decision in buying 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 sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
