Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Sylmar|American Premier Heating & Air Conditioning12/31/2015 It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced 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 make certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally turns to being a reliable temperature. Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most noteworthy 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 uncertain about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician can help you learn 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 available today. What it means for you is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you grasp the concept of SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what you can get from newer air conditioners. Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in picking 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 make sure you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
