December 31, 2015

It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, the majority of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally switches to being a consistent temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of 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 tells you what type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make 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 likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners available today. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you grasp the concept of SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what you can get from newer air conditioners.

Of course there is more that goes in to your decision in buying a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
