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 guess what’s going to happen next with the weather, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally flips the switch to being a consistent 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 noted by 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 figure out its 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 out there now. What that means 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 greater 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 factors into 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 greatly affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
