Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Albuquerque|Desert Suns Heating & Cooling12/31/2015 It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally turns to being a consistent temperature. Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system 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 lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you determine 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 it means for you 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 greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend 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 choosing a new air conditioner or staying 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 better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
