Any Marylander knows how blistering hot it can get in the summer, and how frigidly cold the winter months can be. But keeping your home comfortable year round can get pretty pricey. Energy efficiency is crucial. When evaluating your heating and air conditioning options, the efficiency of the system and potential cost savings are important variables. Fortunately, heating and AC equipment with today’s technology is much more efficient than models manufactured five or ten years ago.
How They Work
Try our energy saving calculators to see how much money and energy you could be saving. Check out the difference upgrading to a high-efficiency heating and air conditioning system can make. For every dollar you spend using a low-efficiency system, you may achieve substantial savings with a higher-efficiency system.
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio)
Try the SEER savings tool below to determine the potential payback you could see by upgrading to a high-efficiency air conditioner. For every energy dollar you spend on running an 8 SEER cooling system, you may see considerable savings using a higher-efficiency system.
AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency)
For every energy dollar you spend on running a 55% AFUE furnace, you may realize significant savings with a higher-efficiency system. Try the AFUE savings tool below to determine the potential payback for upgrading to a high-efficiency replacement furnace.
For every energy dollar you spend on running a 6.8 HSPF heat pump, you may realize significant savings with a higher-efficiency system. See the potential payback for upgrading to a high-efficiency heat pump by trying our HSPF savings tool.
