Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in South Beloit and Belvidere, IL

December 31, 2015

It's safe to say that even with the random weather recently, a lot of the country has at least experienced a little bit of winter. As we keep trying to figure out what's going to take place next with the weather, it's important to make sure that you've had air conditioner service scheduled when the weather finally turns to being a reliable temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the system 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 lets you know about the type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're not sure about your current air conditioner's SEER, don't forget 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 available today. What that means is that with every passing winter you're paying for fuel that ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you take a closer look at it, the greater the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you grasp the concept of 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 sticking to 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 be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
