Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Winchester|Thornberry Bros Inc

Even with ever-changing weather, people in most of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s feeling warmer and it’s the perfect time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for whatever this summer brings.

As an air conditioner owner, you should become familiar with your system, including its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER gives you a rating that indicates 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 visit. He or she can help you understand its rating.


What Does SEER Mean for You?

Older air conditioners usually have a much lower SEER than the high-efficiency air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER probably means you’re wasting money on utility bills due to a less efficient system. An air conditioner with a higher SEER will be more efficient and potentially save you a lot of money in the long term. If you would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.

Other considerations will affect your decision to buy a new air conditioner or continue with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system, but knowing how efficient your system is should be on the top of the list.
