One of the most important factors to consider when installing a new HVAC system in your home is the efficacy of the system. This process is much more involved than simply looking at the energy-efficient ratings associated with each system. A system that may be efficient in your neighbors’ home may not be the best choice for your home.

Finding the Most Efficient HVAC System for Your Home
Each home has unique heating and cooling requirements. A system that works efficiently in your neighbors’ home may not be well-suited for your home. Here are a few of the factors to consider when choosing an energy-efficient HVAC system:
Choose an HVAC System That is The Right Size
Even the most efficient HVAC system will work poorly if it is not the right size for your home. A system that is either too large or too small can cause short cycling and other issues. This can lead to increased electric bills. An efficient HVAC system that is properly sized for your home will be able to run well for years to come.
Look for an HVAC System with High-Efficiency Ratings
Although efficiency ratings aren’t the only factor to consider when choosing an HVAC system, they do provide important information on the system. One of the best ratings to look at is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, more commonly referred to as the SEER rating. Units with a higher SEER rating are more energy-efficient. Occasionally, they will even provide the homeowner with tax savings!
Another rating to consider in this process is the AFUE rating. AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, measures the efficiency of the furnace. High efficiency HVAC systems with a higher AFUE rating are the most energy-efficient.
Improve HVAC Efficiency by Improving External Factors
It is important to choose an HVAC system with a high-efficiency rating. However, it is just as important to ensure the rest of your house is encouraging energy-efficiency. A few external factors that can affect the efficiency of your system are loose seals around your windows and doors and poor ductwork. Installing a programmable thermostat can also improve the efficiency of your HVAC system.Whether you are looking to install a new HVAC system or replace your existing system, Air Care Systems can assist you in finding an HVAC system that will work efficiently in your home.
