Even with erratic weather, people in most of the country have experienced 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 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 visit. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners we offer 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 should save you a lot 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 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.
