Even with ever-changing weather, people in most of the country have experience with 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 anything this summer brings.
As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates 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 understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners generally have a considerably 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 has potential to 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 your system’s efficiency is key.
