It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, a lot 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 certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally turns to being a reliable temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the product itself. One of the most noteworthy tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is denoted as 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, be sure 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 possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What that means is that with every passing year 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 higher 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 you can get from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in buying a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly impact 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.
