Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Paso Robles|Paso Robles Heating and Air12/31/2015 Even with unpredictable weather, people in much 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 whatever this summer comes with. 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 call. He or she can help you understand its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners available now. 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 has potential to save you a significant amount 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 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.
