Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Lake Worth|Smyth Air Conditioning Inc

It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most 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 be sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally switches to being a constant temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most critical 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 expected from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget 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 it boils down to is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's 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 team member can help you comprehend SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.
