Even with ever-changing weather, people in much of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling 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 learn everything you can 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 figure out its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a much lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER likely 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 want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician.
Other considerations will affect your decision 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.
