As we usher in a new year, the temperatures here in Florida finally drop. We pull our boots and jackets out of storage, and we finally turn our heater on. But how do we know if our heater is working efficiently?
AFUE ratings relate to the efficiency of your heater. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient your unit. This rating describes how efficiently your heater can convert fuel to energy.
Anytime our HVAC system is running, we are using energy. When our electric bill starts to skyrocket, it is time to take a look at the efficiency of our air conditioning unit. When the Tampa Bay area finally gets some seasonal weather, it is best to properly control your heat. Cooler months can easily result in an above-average bill if your heater is not working properly.
Overall, the more efficient your ac unit is, the lower the costs. The warmest months of summer or the coldest months in winter will make your costs go up, but this will be in a gradual manner. If you are running your heater and your costs are steadily rising it is time to call a professional. Whether you need a repair or upgrade, or your HVAC unit is needing replacement, The Comfort Authority is here for you 24/7. Call us today at (813) 518-8030.
