It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally switches to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of 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 tells you what type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, make 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 out there now. What it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend 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 picking a new air conditioner or sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically inhibit 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.
