Even with erratic weather, people in most of the country have experienced winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for anything this summer throws at you.
As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER rates how efficient your air conditioner is. If you don’t know your current air conditioner’s SEER, ask your technician during your next air conditioner service appointment. He or she can help you determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a much lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills because of a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a lot of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.
Other factors will help you decide whether to buy a new air conditioner or continue with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system, but knowing your system’s efficiency is very important.
