At Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning, we are proud to say that we
have been working in the HVAC industry for more than three decades. Even
though HVAC maintenance and sales may be a second language to us, we understand
that not all homeowners are fluent in HVAC, heating, ventilation, or air
conditioning terminology. Here are some key terms to help you communicate
with your
AC repair technician:

SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, refers to your AC system’s
energy rating. In general, a higher SEER indicates that your system will
perform at a higher level, resulting in lower energy costs overall.

MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, refers to the size of the
air holes in your AC filter. Higher MERV ratings correspond with smaller
openings and a greater ability to remove harmful particles from the air
in your home, resulting in improved performance overall.

EnergyStar ratings are used to denote products that demonstrate improved
efficiency while surpassing Environmental Protection Agency standards.
Not only can purchasing EnergyStar products qualify you for tax savings,
but it will also reduce your monthly energy costs while benefiting the
environment overall.

Compressor. If you remember the name of one part of your air conditioning
unit, it should probably be the compressor. Responsible for compressing
air and pumping it into the home, compressors are the things that keep
your family cool and comfortable throughout the year. If your AC unit
is running but failing to produce cool air, and the thermostat and electrical
connection are sound, the compressor may be to blame. Unfortunately, compressor
problems are easy to misdiagnose. If you think your compressor may be
broken, don’t hesitate to contact the expert technicians at Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning
for a consultation.
