Did you know that air conditioning accounts for nearly 50% of the energy usage in the United States during the peak summer months? And that air conditioning is responsible for nearly 100 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year?
Miami AC Repair green contractors and the HVAC industry as a whole have evolved into using green technology simply because the cost of energy has risen so much in the last 15 years or so. Manufacturers are now producing and green contractors in South Florida are now installing HVAC equipment that is more efficient and uses less energy to maintain comfortable temperatures, which also helps protect our environment.

- Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) – a furnace rating that represents the percentage of heat produced for every dollar of fuel consumed. The current minimum is 78% AFUE
- Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) – is a measure of a central air conditioner’s efficiency and performance or how much electricity it consumes. Typical SEER ratings range from 13 to 18.
- Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) – This is a measure of the instantaneous energy efficiency of cooling equipment. EER is the steady-state rate of heat energy removal (e.g., cooling capacity) by the equipment in Btuh divided by the steady-state rate of energy input to the equipment in watts. This ratio is expressed in Btuh per watt (Btuh/watt). EER is based on tests performed in accordance with AHRI 210/240 (formerly ARI Standard 210/240).
- Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) – is the heating efficiency rating for heat pumps. The current minimum is 7.7 HSPF
