SEER=Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio
A higher SEER means a system is more energy efficient and provides comfort at a lower monthly utility cost than a lower SEER system.
AFUE=Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency
For heating systems, the unit’s Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating will help you determine how much energy the equipment uses. The federal minimum AFUE rating is 78 percent, but for maximum efficiency, look for a rating in the 80s or 90s.
*The % of savings reflects the average savings on your monthly electricity bill.
