Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Shelby|Hopper Heating and Air

December 31, 2015

It's safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, the majority of the country has at least had a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to take place 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 consistent temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the product 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 tells you what type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be 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 probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners created today. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician 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 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 impact 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.
