Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Buellton|Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning12/31/2015 Even with unpredictable weather, people in most of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s the perfect time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for whatever this summer throws at you. As an air conditioner owner, you should learn everything you can 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 visit. He or she can help you determine its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills because of a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a significant amount 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 affect your decision 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 key.
