Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Santee|Aireforce Heating & Air Inc12/31/2015 Even with ever-changing weather, people in most of the country have experienced winter, even if only a little bit. Now the days are getting warmer and it’s an important time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer comes with. As an air conditioner owner, you should learn everything you can about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates 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 understand its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners generally have a much lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and has potential to save you a chunk of money in the long term. If you want more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, just ask your service technician. Other things 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.
