Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Crestview|Gordon Air Conditioning12/31/2015 It's safe to say that even with the random 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 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 a little 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 noted by 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 team member 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 out there now. 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 technician 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 goes in to your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or staying with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically inhibit the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a closer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
