Air Conditioner Service, SEER and What They Mean for You in Pella|Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating

December 31, 2015

Even with ever-changing weather, people in a lot of the country have experience with winter, even if only a little bit. Now it’s getting warmer and it’s a key time to schedule air conditioner service so you’re ready for everything this summer throws at you.

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


What Does SEER Mean for You?

Older air conditioners generally have a significantly lower SEER than the more efficient air conditioners we offer now. A lower SEER means you could be wasting money on utility bills due to 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 would like more information about SEER or have questions about your air conditioner, all you have to do is ask your service technician.

Other things 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 your system’s efficiency is key.
