It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to take place 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 constant temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of 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 noted by a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician 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 out there now. What it boils down to is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you grasp the concept of SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with 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 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.
