It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced 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 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 noteworthy 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'll get from your system. If you're uncertain 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What that means is that with every passing year 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 greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you understand 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 factors in to your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly 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.
