It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess 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 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 informs you of the type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What it means for you is that with every passing winter 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 technician can help you understand 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 staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
