Even with erratic weather, people in a lot of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling 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 visit. He or she can help you determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners many times have a much lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners offered today. 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 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, just ask your service technician.
Other factors 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.
