Even with erratic weather, people in much of the country have experienced 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 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 considerably lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER means you could be 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 chunk 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 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.
