Even with unpredictable weather, people in most of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling 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 learn everything you can about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER rates 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 appointment. He or she can help you determine its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally 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 potentially 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, be sure to 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 key.
