3 Ways to Improve the Efficiency of Your HVAC System in 2020
Upgrade/ Equipment selection:
Picking the correct size, brand and model is essential to the cultivation of the right solution. Usually, we offer our primary consultation sessions for free to address this criterion. However, we will provide you with the minimum requirements that ensure having a relatively efficient system.
Furnace: must be the right size (measured in BTU/h), must have an AFUE (annual fuel usage efficiency) of 96% or higher for the heat exchanger, and also must use a DC-brushless blower motor for comfort and efficiency.
Air conditioner: must be the right size (measured in 1ton = 12000BTU/h), must have a SEER (seasonal effective efficiency ratio) of at least 13.00 (14.00-16.00 recommended for Ontario), and use R-410-A as a refrigerant. The air conditioner system also should use a high-efficiency evaporative coil.
Water heater: it is more efficient and manageable to use a tankless water heater system.
Attic insulation: one of the major overlooked sources of heat loss, an upgrade to R-60 level of heat loss resistance is recommended and can contribute greatly to the overall efficiency of the household.
Annual check up and maintenance:
Maintaining your equipment on an annual basis prevents arising issues and keeps the equipment at their peak efficiency. There are respectively an 18 step process for the furnace, 14 step process for the Air conditioner and a 9 step process for the water heater just to diagnose the current status of the equipment. By performing these on an annual basis, the HVAC professional assures the system of being in optimal efficiency and lifespan.

Repair quality assurance:
Your equipment may need repairs and adjustments during its lifespan. The new HVAC equipment is quite more complicated and requires a professional with adequate experience and skills.
