Even with unpredictable weather, people in much of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with 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 call. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners many times have a much lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should 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, 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 key.
