Note: Air-Source Heat Pumps qualify for rebats for replacement of electric furnace in manufactured homes only
You want your home to be comfortable year-round, especially in hot summers and cold winters. During those times, questions about energy costs arise – balancing comfort and cost in your home doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s a matter of measuring, managing and understanding SEER.
Your home’s cooling system is rated by SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is a measure of a unit’s maximum efficiency, similar to the miles per gallon (MPG) of your car – the higher the number, the more efficient it is. A low SEER rating of your home’s cooling system indicates you’re not as efficient as you could be.
It’s important to have a system with higher SEER for greater energy efficiency and MORE savings. Regardless of your HVAC SEER rating, replacing your unit with one rated higher can lower energy costs – as much as 5 to 10% on cooling costs, when everything is installed correctly.
Getting the savings associated with a higher-SEER unit might require a higher initial investment. That’s where West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC) can help.
