It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced 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 turns to being a constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system 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 expected from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you figure out 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 available today. What it boils down to is that with every passing year 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 the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech 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 factors in to your decision in buying a new air conditioner or continuing with 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 be certain that you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
