Even with unpredictable weather, people in much of the country have experienced 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 anything this summer comes with.
As an air conditioner owner, you should learn 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 visit. 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 highly efficient air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to your system’s inefficiency. 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 want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, be sure to ask your service technician.
Other things 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 how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
