It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, the majority of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally turns 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 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, be 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 likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What it means for you is that with every passing winter 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 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 sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system.
