Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Perry|Gillman Heating and Air

December 31, 2015

It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, a lot of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to occur next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally turns to being a reliable temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a little bit of 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 lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member 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 created today. What that means 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 better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you grasp the concept of 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 goes in to your decision in buying a new air conditioner or continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can severely inhibit 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.
