Heating and cooling can account for more than half of your home’s total utility bill.* So when looking for ways to cut your energy costs, be sure to think about a high-efficiency system. High-efficiency systems are easily identified by reading the yellow-and-black EnergyGuide label found on the equipment.
** Air conditioner calculations are based on every $100 spent to cool a home using a 3- ton, 13-SEER unit. The criteria base for furnaces is a 60% AFUE unit, with a 50,000-Btuh heating load. Fuel rates and heating hours are factored into the calculation upon selection of a state or region. If a state is not selected, the calculator defaults to the US national average for fuel and electricity consumption. Actual costs and savings will vary depending on weather conditions, usage, location and local utility rates. This information is intended as an example for comparison purposes only.
