It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally switches to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that tells you what 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 tech can help you learn 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 season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you grasp the concept of 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 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 greatly 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.
