It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, the majority of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner 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'll get from 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 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 available 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 higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in picking a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely inhibit the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
