Even with ever-changing weather, people in much 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 whatever this summer throws at you.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn 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 appointment. 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 high-efficiency air conditioners available now. A lower SEER probably 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 lot of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.
Other factors will decide if you should 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.
