Furnaces feature an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating, measuring a gas furnace’s efficiency to convert the fuel to energy. Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps feature Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating to measure the cooling efficiency. Heat pumps also are rated for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) to measure the heating efficiency. In all cases, the higher the rated number, the more efficient the product.
When summer heats up, many central air conditioners units will be repaired or replaced. Additionally, the rise of summer heat also means a rise in electric bills. One of the most expensive appliances you’ll purchase for a home is a central cooling system (only to be rivaled by the heating system). Finding the right central cooling system for your home is largely dependent on the contractor you choose.
