Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Erie|Patterson & Stirling Inc

December 31, 2015

Even with erratic weather, people in a lot of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s an important time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer comes with.

As an air conditioner owner, you should learn about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER tells you 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 understand its rating.


What Does SEER Mean for You?

Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and potentially save you a lot of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.

Other factors 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 your system’s efficiency is very important.
