Air Conditioners

Federal laws mandate that all new air conditioning systems achieve a minimum 13 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) rating.

Furnaces

California laws mandate that all new furnaces achieve a minimum of 80% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating. A new high-efficiency furnace can reduce your gas usage by as much as 40%.

Rebates from manufacturers and/or utility companies may be available. Federal tax credits are also available on certain systems. Check to see if they make sense for you.

Homeowners should be aware that replacing a single component might not be possible due to the new federal efficiency standards. Use the link below to check the efficiency rating of any proposed heating and air conditioning system. Check to make sure that all of the components “match” before agreeing to any contract.
