It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess 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 constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some 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 recognized as a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member 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 boils down to is that with every passing season 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 higher 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 to expect from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that goes 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 affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to make sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
