Even with ever-changing weather, people in most of the country have experienced winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are getting warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer throws at you.
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 call. He or she can help you understand its rating.
What Does SEER Mean for You?
Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER likely means you’re wasting money on utility bills because of 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, all you have to do is 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.
