Understanding Heat Pump Efficiency Ratings

If your home or business is in need of a new heat pump, it’s important to look for one that offers both a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) as well as a high HSPF (heating season performance) rating. The SEER rating provides an indication of how well the unit will cool your building during the hotter months, while the HSPF rating identifies how well the HVAC unit will heat the interior air. For the best results, choose a heat pump that delivers high ratings for both SEER and HSPF.

Understanding Furnace Efficiency Ratings

maximize-efficiency-heatingWhen dealing with furnaces, the efficiency is identified by the AFUE or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) requires all companies to include the AFUE for each of the units being manufactured. Older models have lower AFUEs, meaning that they don’t perform as well as newer models. For greater efficiency and savings on your energy bills, choose a furnace with an AFUE of at least 91%. Since models offering greater efficiency are also more expensive, here’s a look at AFUE ratings in general.

  • AFUE of 77% and below delivers the lowest levels of efficiency and higher energy costs
  • AFUE of 78% to 90% provides solid performance with a middle-of-the-road efficiency and good energy savings
  • AFUE of 91% and up offers the highest levels of efficiency as well as the greatest savings on your energy bills

Understanding the Importance of Choosing a Properly Sized System

CarrierHeating-FADAll too often, buildings are fitted with a heating unit that simply wasn’t designed for a structure of that size. This problem is understandable, and it is usually caused by a failure to consider whether or not the system being purchased is actually the correct size. After all, the AFUE, SEER, HSPF, or EER are listed in the high range, so why shouldn’t the unit heat or cool the home properly?

In order to determine what size heating system is needed, you must consider each of the following factors:

  • The number of floors in the building
  • The size of each of the rooms
  • The climate in Dallas, OR
  • The square footage of the entire living space
  • The age, condition, and quantity of insulation in the building
  • Amount of direct sunlight your building receives
  • The British Thermal Units (BTUs) required by your structure for proper heating to occur

The BTUs are actually calculated by taking into consideration all of the other factors. Our heating specialist can assist you with this task, ensuring the installation of a heating unit that is properly sized for your home or commercial building.

Installing a Digital Thermostat

carrier-new-thermostat-smallWhile energy savings are realized by installing a quality heating unit offering a high SEER, EER, AFUE, and HSPF, you can maximize those savings by installing a digital thermostat that allows you to:

  • Program temperatures throughout the day and week
  • Make changes to your temperature using your phone and the Internet
  • Control the humidity levels in your building
  • Observe a schedule for proper maintenance, including changing the filter
