Efficiency Rating: If you don't know your unit’s efficiency rating, please select from the range in the drop down list, otherwise select n/a. There are two general ratings used for systems, depending on your system type – SEER for cooling and AFUE for heating. SEERs (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) range between 5 and 18. Older systems can have SEERs as low as 6 to 10. Current systems which can deliver monthly savings and lower bills are as high as 18. AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) measures thermal efficiency of combustion systems. It is normally stated as a percentage ratio of the output to input and can range as low as 60% for and old cast iron unit to 100% for newer electric central systems. See the SEER and AFUE Tool links at the bottom of this page for details on how much you could save with a new unit.
Is your unit under Warranty? Check Yes if your HVAC unit is still under warranty.
Remaining Warranty Time: type in the number of years that are left before your warranty expires, type 0 (zero) if less than 1 year, leave blank if you have answered no to the previous question “Is your unit under Warranty?”
