Even with erratic weather, people in most of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer throws at you.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER tells you 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 determine 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 probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and potentially 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, be sure to 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 how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
