CONSIDER THE AIR CONDITIONER SEER RATINGS
You know your air conditioner is getting old and you’re trying to get one final year out of it. Some make it, others don’t. You will need to find a replacement quickly, before it gets too warm. So you will want to take the Air Conditioner SEER rating into account.
WHAT IS THE SEER RATING?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. What this really means is the amount of cooling power produced per unit of electricity. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient your system will be meaning your monthly power bill will be lower. The higher the SEER, generally means the higher the price tag.
The SEER rating on your air conditioner is easy to locate. You can either find it in the products specs online, or at Colony Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. This link will show you the SEER ratings to compare before you purchase. And of course, our professionals will help you out. Another factor to consider when purchasing a new Air Conditioner is the stages. Two stage systems offer better comfort and higher efficiency than single-stage systems. All SEER ratings will be 13-25. In the warmer regions, the minimum is 14. Like miles per gallon in your car, the higher the SEER rating on your air conditioner, the more comfort you will get from each dollar. A 13 SEER will save you 38% annually, 15-16 SEER will be around 50% while a 22 SEER will be up around 64%.
