Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Pinellas County|Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc12/31/2015 Even with unpredictable weather, people in much 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 determine its rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? Older air conditioners usually have a considerably lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners available now. 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 potentially save you a lot of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, be sure to ask your service technician. Other factors will decide if you should 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.
