Even with ever-changing 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 a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for whatever this summer throws at you.
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 figure out its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners many times have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER likely means you’re wasting money on utility bills because of a less efficient system. 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 need more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just 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.
