system over time. More energy efficient systems mean lower
monthly utility bills, leading to savings you'll reap year after
year for the life of the system.
The heating efficiency of a furnace is measured by its Annual
Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), which calculates the percentage
of energy actually used to heat your home. Newer
furnaces have an AFUE of 80% or more, and Bryant offers
models up to 98.3%. If your current system has an AFUE of
less than 80%, you could save considerably on your monthly
utilities with an upgrade.
For an air conditioner or heat pump, the measurement is
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) - a higher SEER rating
means greater energy savings. 14 SEER is the minimum
currently required for most markets (13 SEER for air conditioners
in some Northern markets), and Bryant has models
up to 20.5. Upgrading to a higher SEER rating means energy
savings over the life of the system. For heat pumps in heating
mode, look for a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor
(HSPF) of over 10 for greater efficiencies. Bryant offers heat
pumps with HSPF of up to 13.
Installing a more efficient system may also qualify you for tax
credits or local utility rebates. Talk to us for more information
on Bryant Bonus or incentives available.
Indoor Air Quality
Your heating and cooling system can also play a role in maintaining
good indoor air quality - your indoor environment is
often more polluted than the outdoors, and the Environmental
Protection Agency rates poor indoor air quality as a top
environmental health concern.
We offer air cleaning and humidification products to improve
your system to help you breathe a little easier.
The Bottom Line
Whether you decide to repair or replace, you can trust in the
quality of Bryant. Your heating and cooling system is one of
the most expensive components of your home, and one of
the most important - your family's comfort depends on it.
So the choice between replacing and repairing the system
is a big one...and sometimes, if your furnace goes out in the
dead of winter, or your air conditioning fails in the heat of
August, the pressure to make the right decision is even more
immediate.
Know you have a reliable partner on your side. The staff
at Mervin Zimmerman will walk you through the pros and
cons of either option, and is committed to helping you with
making the right solution for you and your
family. For more information, please call
