Efficiency Ratings for Heat Pumps

If you find yourself searching for a new heat pump, it’s important that you understand the ratings you’ll discover on the label. These ratings (HSPF and SEER) identify just how efficiently an HVAC unit is designed to operate. Typically, heat pumps  with a high SEER rating will also have a high HSPF rating.

The HSPF or heating season performance factor offers a measure of well your heat pump will perform in the winter. If you want the highest efficiency and cost savings that you can get, choose a heat pump with the highest HSPF that you can find.

The SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating offers a measure of how efficient your HVAC unit cools your home or business. The United States government provides a minimum rating which all HVAC manufacturers must meet when producing new equipment. Older models that are already installed in many homes and commercial buildings have lower energy efficiency ratings. Replacing these models will lead to cost savings and lower energy bills throughout the year.

Efficiency Ratings for Furnaces

energy-efficiencyWhenever you are in search of a new furnace, the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating should always be considered. The AFUE rating must be included on all furnaces per the mandate set forth by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It is designed to aid consumers in selecting a furnace that is going to deliver the kind of efficiency they are hoping to get. All furnaces are required to meet a minimum of efficiency, and you can use the following list to help you understand which ratings are actually good ones.

  • AFUE of 77% and below offers the lowest levels of efficiency
  • AFUE of 78% to 90% offers solid performance with mid-range efficiency
  • AFUE of 91% and up offers the highest levels of efficiency

Installing a properly sized system is your best strategy when trying to create a comfortable living or working environment. When your system is the correct size for your home, it delivers a high level of efficiency, unlike models that are too small or too large.

Heaters that are too large for your home typically go through a period of short cycling, during which they turn on and off frequently.

Our heating specialists can help you determine the proper size unit for your building using the following factors:

  • How many floors the building has
  • Individual sizes of each room
  • Square footage
  • Climate in your location
  • Age and quantity of existing insulation
  • Amount of direct sunlight your building receives
  • BTUs (British Thermal Units) required to heat your building, which our specialists calculate for you using the conditions listed above.
