Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Anchorage, AK

December 31, 2015

It's safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, most of the country has at least dealt with a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to guess what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally switches to being a constant temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most noteworthy tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is recognized as a rating that lets you know about the type of efficiency you can expect out of your system. If you're unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, be sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the tech can help you figure out 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 created today. What it means for you is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel which then is being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the better the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service technician can help you understand SEER better if you have any questions about your current system or what to expect from newer air conditioners.

Of course there is more that factors in to 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 drastically impact the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
