Even with ever-changing weather, people in much of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are getting warmer and it’s an important time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for anything this summer throws at you.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn everything you can about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates 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 call. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners many times have a much lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER likely means you’re 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 significant amount of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician.
Other considerations will decide if you should 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.
