It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most 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 done when the weather finally switches to being a reliable temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the product 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 technician can help you figure out 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 it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you grasp the concept of 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 choosing a new air conditioner or continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
