Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Safford|B&D Air Conditioning

It's safe to say that even with the crazy 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 switches to being a consistent temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves some familiarization and understanding of the product itself. One of the most noteworthy 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 unsure about your current air conditioner's SEER, make sure to ask during your next air conditioner service appointment and the team member 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 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 greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you understand 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 staying 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 be certain that you got a clearer look at one of the more important considerations for air conditioners.
