It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, the majority of the country has at least dealt with 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 completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being a constant temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system itself. One of the most important 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 unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you figure out 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 that means is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with newer air conditioners.

Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in picking a new air conditioner or sticking to 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 sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
