Lowering the cost of AC after learning about SEER

Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Port Saint Lucie|Custom Air Systems Inc

It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot 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 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 critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is denoted as a rating that informs you of the 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 learn it's rating.


What Does SEER Mean for You?

If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is probably quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What that means is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech can help you understand SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.

Of course there is more that is involved in your decision in choosing a new air conditioner or continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can greatly impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be sure you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
