To help you make informed decisions about how to save energy, several rating systems have been developed. Higher numbers in each of these metrics indicates greater efficiency – and more savings! For example, our 98% AFUE modulating gas furnace will use $69 worth of gas to provide the same amount of heat that would cost $100 with a gas furnace that only has a 70% AFUE rating.
Nearly half of all YORK® air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces display the ENERGY STAR® label. This label was created by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and, in the case of HVAC systems, is used to denote products that will save at least 15% to 25% more energy than standard products.
What does the ENERGY STAR® label mean in the real world? ENERGY STAR® qualified, 18 SEER YORK® air conditioners or heat pumps will cost $56 to provide three tons of cooling compared to $100 with a 10 SEER unit.
