Even with ever-changing weather, people in a lot 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 anything this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn everything you can 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 determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners offered today. 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 potentially 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 considerations 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.
