Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Crestview|Gordon Air Conditioning12/31/2015 Even with ever-changing weather, people in most of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for anything this summer comes with. As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates how efficient your air conditioner is. If you don’t know your current air conditioner’s SEER, ask your technician during your next air conditioner service appointment. He or she can help you determine its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners usually have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to your system’s inefficiency. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and potentially save you a chunk of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician. Other things will help you decide whether to buy a new air conditioner or continue with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system, but knowing how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
