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 determine what's going to occur 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 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 informs you of 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 figure out it's rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician 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 factors in to 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 greatly 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.
