Even with unpredictable weather, people in most 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 everything 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 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 visit. He or she can help you figure out its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners we offer now. 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 lot 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 how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
