Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Huffman|Air Houston Mechanical LLC

December 31, 2015

Even with unpredictable weather, people in a lot of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling warmer and it’s the perfect time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer comes with.

As an air conditioner owner, you should learn about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates how efficient your air conditioner is. If you don’t know your current air conditioner’s SEER, ask your technician during your next air conditioner service appointment. He or she can help you determine its rating.


What Does SEER Mean for You?

Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER likely means you’re wasting money on utility bills because of a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and potentially save you a lot of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.

Other things will affect your decision to buy a new air conditioner or continue with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system, but knowing your system’s efficiency is key.
