When it comes to installing a new heating or air conditioning system, many homeowners are seeking a greater level of energy savings to offset the cost of the installation, but why are rating numbers important.
The rating numbers indicate the efficiency of air conditioning and heating equipment. It is directly related to the amount of energy a specific model uses. The higher the rating the more efficient the product is, and the more money you can save on your energy bill. For cooling the rating is SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and for heat pumps the rating is HSPF Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. A gas furnace is rated with AFUE Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency.
