Even with unpredictable weather, people in most of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are 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 learn about 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 figure out 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 means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to your system’s inefficiency. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and has potential to save you a chunk of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.
Other things will affect your decision 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 key.
