It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, a lot of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally turns to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a 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 lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member can help you learn 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 created today. What that means 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 higher 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 grasp the concept of SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that goes in to 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 make sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
