Even with unpredictable weather, people in most of the country have experience with 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 throws at you.
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 usually have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available 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 potentially save you a chunk of money in the long term. If you need more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, be sure to 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.
