Even with erratic weather, people in much of the country have experience with 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 whatever this summer comes with.
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 call. He or she can help you figure out its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a much lower SEER than the high-efficiency 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 potentially save you a lot 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 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 how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
