Even with unpredictable weather, people in much of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are getting warmer and it’s the perfect 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 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 visit. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a much lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a chunk 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 things 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 how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
