Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Orange County|Mighty Ducts

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 guess what's going to occur next with the weather, it's important to make certain that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally flips the switch to being a reliable temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the air conditioner itself. One of the most critical tidbits to know is your air conditioner's SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is noted by a rating that tells you what type of efficiency expected from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the technician 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 boils down to 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 greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater chance for an increase in savings. Again, your air conditioner service tech 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 goes 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 severely affect the comfort and cost of keeping your home comfortable, so we wanted to be certain that you got a better look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
