It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service completed 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 system 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 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, don't forget to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member can help you determine 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 winter 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 chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you comprehend 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 sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to make sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
