Does AFUE Have You Confused
The terms you encounter when shopping for a new heating system can be confusing. Like AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. As with your car’s miles-per-gallon rating, a higher AFUE rating means a higher efficiency unit. An AFUE of 90% means 90% of the fuel is used to heat your home, while the other 10% is wasted in gases vented outside. Choose a higher AFUE to save more energy. As Westinghouse heating and air experts, we can help you choose the right system to optimize your home comfort and energy savings. Call us for more information today.
Alarming Facts About Air Filters
Here’s an alarming statistic from Westinghouse: 50% of homes with central heating and A/C systems don’t get a regular filter change. In fact, 10% have never had a filter replacement. For optimum air quality, you should check your air filter every month, and replace it when it looks dirty or after three months—whichever comes first. For extra protection, install a HEPA grade furnace filter that will remove more particles overall, and also catch the tiniest ones that pass right through regular filters. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend products and practices to improve the air quality of your home. Call us for a consultation today.
How to Save Energy by Using Your Thermostat
"How well are you using your programmable thermostat? Think about when your family wakes up, leaves the house and goes to bed. Then, set your thermostat to change temperature at these times. Realize winter savings by programming your thermostat to drop by eight degrees when you’re away and when you’re sleeping. In the summer, increase the temperature by seven degrees when you’re away and by four degrees when you’re sleeping. And never override your thermostat or place it on hold. Turning the temperature way up or down won’t make your system heat or cool faster, but it will make it work overtime and wreak havoc on your energy bills. Ask us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, how to optimize your settings during your next pre-season checkup. It could save you as much as $180 a year. "
