Even with erratic 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 an important time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for anything this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates 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 understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners offered today. 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 potentially save you a significant amount 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 things will help you decide whether 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 very important.
