Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Tucson|Ambient Air

It's safe to say that even with the crazy 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 take place next with the weather, it's important to be sure that you've had air conditioner service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being a reliable temperature.

Part of owning and using an air conditioner involves a bit of familiarization and understanding of the system 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 tells you what type of efficiency you'll get from your system. If you're uncertain 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 learn 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 out there now. What it boils down to is that with every passing season you're paying for fuel that ends up being wasted, not to keep your home comfy. When you break it down, the higher the SEER rating, the greater the efficiency and the greater the potential for savings. Again, your air conditioner service team member can help you comprehend 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 continuing with an annual air conditioner service plan on your current system. Over time, efficiency levels can drastically impact 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.
