Heating and cooling is the largest energy expense in your home and can account for as much as 54% of your household’s monthly energy consumption. If your energy bills are on the rise, it might be time to consider upgrading to a more energy efficient HVAC system.
When shopping for a new cooling system, it pays to consider your options. The efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps is measured in SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The greater the SEER, the higher the savings potential.
Save on your utility bills by replacing your old furnace with a newer, more energy efficient model. Compare the AFUE, or annual fuel utilization efficiency of your existing system to that of a new system and see how much you could potentially save. For example, upgrading from an AFUE of 78 to an AFUE of 97 can deliver estimated savings of up to $343 annually on your fuel costs.
