Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Tampa Bay|Langford Cooling12/31/2015 Even with erratic weather, people in most of the country have gone through winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are getting warmer and it’s a key 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 rates 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 figure out its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners usually have a much lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners offered today. A lower SEER likely means you’re 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 significant amount of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician. Other considerations 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 key.
