Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Orange County|Ocean Air Conditioning12/31/2015 It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to determine what's going to happen next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally switches 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 important tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that informs you of the type of efficiency expected from 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 team member can help you figure out it's rating. What Does SEER Mean for You? If you have an older air conditioner, your SEER is likely quite a bit lower than the air conditioners out there now. What it means for you is that with every passing year you're paying for fuel that's being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you think about it, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the better chance you have for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you grasp the concept of SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what the difference is with 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 affect 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.
