Even with unpredictable weather, people in a lot of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s the perfect time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for anything this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with 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 call. He or she can help you determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to your system’s inefficiency. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a lot of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, be sure to ask your service technician.
Other factors 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.
