It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, the majority of the country has at least experienced 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 flips the switch 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 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 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What it boils down to is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you understand 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 picking a new air conditioner or sticking to an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically inhibit 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.
