At EcoEnvironments, we utilize our breadth of expertise to ensure your equipment and the installation is optimum for your home. High efficiency units meet strict guidelines that help you save money on your utility bills and protect the environment.
According to ENERGY STAR, if just one out of every ten households used high efficiency heating and cooling equipment, it would reduce the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as if we took 1.3 million cars off the road.
These home appliances have specific requirements, such as seasonal efficiency (SEER) and energy efficiency (EER) ratios or annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) ratings:
- For central air conditioners, high efficiency ratings make them up to 30% more efficient than units manufactured more than 12 years ago and about 14% more efficient than standard models.
- For furnaces, high efficiency units are up to 15% more efficient than standard models.
