There is also a HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rate that measures the efficiency level of the heating mode in heat pumps
The other morning I was in a department store looking at their property improvement section! I was mainly looking at landscape ideas in addition to trying to find some landscaping supplies so I could start planting Springtime flowers in addition to getting rid of the dead plants that did not make it through winter. While I was in an aisle I heard someone talking about their HVAC system. That reminded me that I needed to set an appointment with my local HVAC provider to have him take a look at it in addition to I wanted to ask him a few questions about how energy-efficient my HVAC system really is. If there was a way, I would like to update my system to a more energy efficient system. When he arrived a week later I asked him how could I find out how energy-efficient it was. He told me that I could look for the SEER number on my air conditioner. The Seer number measures the cooling efficiency from the air conditioner or the heat pump. The higher the Seer number means the more energy efficient it is. I could also look at the AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) percentage for gas in addition to oil boilers. This percentage tells you how much fuel is really used to heat your property in addition to how much is wasted. There is also a HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rate that measures the efficiency level of the heating mode in heat pumps. I never knew of these types of ratings before in addition to I was actually glad to hear about them so I could pay attention to it in addition to make an energy difference in my home.
