High-Efficiency HVAC BenefitsLiving in Southern New Hampshire, you know how important it is to be ready for the most extreme temperatures in any season. One easy way to protect your home, your family, and your wallet from the summer heat and winter chill is to make sure your home energy equipment is up to snuff.

Your local HVAC experts supply and install high-efficiency heating and cooling systems so you can keep your living space comfortable while saving money all year long.

Why upgrade to high efficiency?

Using higher efficiency heating and cooling systems translates to more e­ffective energy output. This can provide significant benefits for your property, your family’s comfort, and our environment.

  • Savings on annual heating and cooling costs
  • Improved year-round home comfort
  • Reduced risk of equipment failure
  • Fewer emissions

What makes a system high e­fficiency?

Each furnace or boiler’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). Simply put, this rating represents how much heat the system gives off­, taking into account the energy consumed by the system’s operation. Air conditioning system efficiency is measured in a similar way, using the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). High-efficiency heating systems most commonly share these characteristics:

  • 90% to 98.5% AFUE
  • Sealed combustion
  • ENERGY STAR® approval

Top high-efficiency air conditioning equipment typically boasts the following:

  • 20 SEER or higher
  • Compatible with programmable thermostats
  • ENERGY STAR® approval

When is it time to upgrade?

If your current heating or cooling system is more than 15 years old, you can save anywhere from 30% to 50% by upgrading to new, energy-efficiency appliances. Installing new equipment is particularly important if your heating system’s stack temperature over 500° or if your A/C still uses R22 refrigerant.
