Even with ever-changing weather, people in much of the country have gone through 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 everything this summer comes with.
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 visit. He or she can help you determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER likely 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 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, all you have to do is ask your service technician.
Other considerations 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 very important.
