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 guess what's going to occur next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service done 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 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 lets you know about the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be 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 likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What that means is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have 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 factors in to 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 greatly inhibit 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.
