It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the 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 consistent 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 critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is denoted as a rating that tells you what 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 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 possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. 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 higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in 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 you can get from newer air conditioners.
Of course there is more that factors in to your decision in picking 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 clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
