Efficiency Ratings for Heat Pumps

If you find yourself searching for a new heat pump, it’s important that you understand the ratings you’ll discover on the label. These ratings (HSPF and SEER) identify just how efficiently an HVAC unit is designed to operate. Typically, heat pumps with a high SEER rating will also have a high HSPF rating.

The HSPF or heating season performance factor offers a measure of well your heat pump will perform in the winter. If you want the highest efficiency and cost savings that you can get, choose a heat pump with the highest HSPF that you can find.

The SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating offers a measure of how efficient your HVAC unit cools your home or business. The United States government provides a minimum rating that all HVAC manufacturers must meet when producing new equipment. Older models that are already installed in many homes and commercial buildings have lower energy efficiency ratings. Replacing these models will lead to cost savings and lower energy bills throughout the year.

Efficiency Ratings for Furnace

Energy Efficiency

Whenever you are in search of a new furnace, the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating should always be considered. The AFUE rating must be included on all furnaces per the mandate set forth by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It is designed to aid consumers in selecting a furnace that is going to deliver the kind of efficiency they are hoping to get. All furnaces are required to meet a minimum of efficiency, and you can use the following list to help you understand which ratings are actually good ones.

  • AFUE of 77% and below offers the lowest levels of efficiency
  • AFUE of 78% to 90% offers solid performance with mid-range efficiency
  • AFUE of 91% and up offers the highest levels of efficiency

Are You Experiencing Problems With Your Heating System


If you are beginning to wonder if your heating system is functioning properly, it might be time to consider having an experienced technician come to your home or business to look at it. We offer quality heater repair in West Salem, no matter how old your equipment is. Our technicians are highly trained and knowledgeable, giving them the skills needed to assess your heating equipment, diagnose the problem, and resolve whatever issues you are having.

Is Your Heater the Right Size?

Installing a properly sized system is your best strategy when trying to create a comfortable living or working environment. When your system is the correct size for your home, it delivers a high level of efficiency, unlike models that are too small or too large.

Heaters that are too large for your home typically go through a period of short cycling, during which they turn on and off frequently. On the other hand, furnaces that are much too small for your home doesn’t shut off, creating the risk of overheating as well as failing to heat your home or commercial building comfortable.

Our Heating Specialists Can Help You Determine the Proper Size Unit for Your Building Using the Following Factors:

  • How many floors the building has
  • Individual sizes of each room
  • Square footage
  • Climate in your location
  • Age and quantity of existing insulation
  • Amount of direct sunlight your building receives
  • BTUs (British Thermal Units) required to heat your building, which our specialists calculate for you using the conditions listed above.

Heating & Cooling FAQ

  • Why should I get a new HVAC system?
    It can often be difficult for home and business owners to tell if it’s time to upgrade their heating and cooling system. Loren's Heating & Air can assist you in this process. We want you to understand the pros and cons of continuing to repair and maintain your current system versus upgrading and making the investment in a new system. Some of the most important things to consider are increased energy efficiency, updated components, rebates and incentives, better home comfort and indoor air quality, and more effective heating and cooling.
  • Why are air conditioner efficiency ratings important?
    In 2006, the Federal Government made it mandatory for all central air conditioning systems to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of the cooling system’s performance. On the highest end of performance, cooling units are rated as high 23 SEER. As with anything, the better performance, the higher the cost. For a system with moderate to good efficiency, you should look for a model with a SEER rating of between 14 and 18. The EER, or the Energy Efficiency Rating, provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the system that you’ve had installed. The higher the EER number, the better the system’s cooling capacity.
  • What are the different types of air conditioner refrigerant?
    If you have an air conditioning system that requires the old type of refrigerant, R-22, your system is still usable but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. R410-A is now the required standard for newer systems and has less environmental impact relative to the older refrigerant. Eventually, you will need to replace your air conditioner with one that uses R410-A, or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. The type of refrigerant your AC uses is only one of many reasons to consider upgrading, and if your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced to boost energy efficiency, lessen environmental impact, and make sure you are operating a safe system. Not only will an upgraded cooling system make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it’ll also save you money on your annual cooling costs. Loren's Heating & Air in Salem, OR, offers the highest quality air conditioner replacement services.
  • How is furnace efficiency measured?
    Furnace energy efficiency is calculated with the AFUE, or the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE is a rating that compares how much heat a furnace will produce relative to the amount of energy necessary to produce the heat. If a furnace is rated at 85 percent AFUE, it means 15 percent of the energy used is lost and 85 percent actually becomes heat for your home or business.
  • What is indoor air quality and why is it important?
    Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is a measurement of the amount of airborne particles and pollutants inside your home or building. Because properties are being constructed to be more energy efficient, they are also becoming more airtight, meaning that fresh air often does not have a way to enter and circulate. This is one of the reasons why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, leading to a host of allergy and respiratory issues. Fortunately, IAQ products such as air filters, air purifiers, and humidifiers work in conjunction with your central AC and heating unit to decrease the prevalence of dust, dander, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other potentially harmful particles in your indoor air. Our team can work with you to find the right solution to fit your needs.
