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 determine 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 turns to being a reliable temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most important tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is recognized as a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician 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 winter you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you comprehend 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 in to 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 better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
