Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Rapid City|Precision Mechanical

December 31, 2015

Even with erratic weather, people in much of the country have experienced winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s the perfect time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for whatever this summer comes with.

As an air conditioner owner, you should learn about your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER tells you 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 appointment. He or she can help you determine its rating.


What Does SEER Mean for You?

Older air conditioners usually have a significantly lower SEER than the highly efficient air conditioners available now. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills because of a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and should save you a significant amount of money in the long term. If you need more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, be sure to ask your service technician.

Other factors will help you decide whether to 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 very important.
