It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, a lot of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out 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 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 denoted as a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency expected from 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 technician can help you figure out it's rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What it means for you is that with every passing year 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 greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you understand 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 buying a new air conditioner or continuing 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 sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
