Energy Efficiency In Your Home

Heating and cooling account for more than half the energy use in the average home – so an energy-efficient HVAC system can save you money while keeping you and your family comfortable. Supreme and Bryant® offer reliable furnace and air conditioning products with a wide range of efficiency ratings, so you can pick the right solution that pays you back in lower utility costs.

Understanding HVAC Energy Ratings

You need Energy-Efficient Equipment to save on Heating & Cooling costs. Energy-efficient heating and air conditioning equipment make your home comfort more affordable. Understanding efficiency ratings is an important first step in choosing the system that’s right for you.

Furnaces: If you have an older furnace, you could save considerably on your heating bill by upgrading to a higher-efficiency model – start by checking out the AFUE rating.

AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency)

  • Standard measurement of efficiency for gas and oil-fired furnaces
  • Tells you how much of your fuel is used to heat your home and how much is wasted
  • The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency
  • Supreme and Bryant offer a full line of energy-efficient furnaces with AFUE ratings of up to 98.3%
  • Upgrading to high-efficiency heat pumps and air conditioners requires an initial investment, but you’ll quickly see payback in the form of lower annual utility bills for the life of your system.

Energy-Efficient Air Conditioning & Heat Pumps

To compare the efficiency of these products, look for two numbers – SEER rating for cooling, and if you’re considering a heat pump, HSPF for heating.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio)

  • Standard measurement of efficiency for the cooling process of air conditioners and heat pumps
  • The higher the number, the greater the efficiency
  • Bryant offers a full line of air conditioners with SEER ratings of up to 20.5 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)
  • Standard measurement of the efficiency of the heating mode of heat pumps
  • The higher the number, the greater the efficiency

An additional factor to the efficiency of your air conditioning or cooling system is your indoor coil (also called an evaporator coil). In order to maximize SEER and HSPF ratings and ensure proper performance, your air conditioner or heat pump unit must be matched with the correct indoor coil. When you replace an existing air conditioning system, make sure you consider replacing the indoor coil so you get the most efficient performance.
