It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, a lot of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being a consistent temperature.
Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the product itself. One of the most noteworthy tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is denoted as a rating that informs you of the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you learn it's rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is possibly quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What it means for you is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with newer air conditioners.
