It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, most of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to occur 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 air conditioner itself. One of the most noteworthy tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you determine 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 available today. What it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.

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