It's safe to say that even with the random 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 certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled 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 system itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that informs you of 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 learn 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 out there now. 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 break it down, the greater 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 grasp the concept of 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 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.
