Southern California is famous for sunny skies and beautiful beaches but anyone who has lived in Ventura or Los Angeles for more than a few months knows that we need our air conditioners for cooling and may rely on them in their capacity as a heat pump for heating needs as well.
We commonly experience blistering hot days during summer months and winter chills that often have us scurrying to break out our winter coats as we turn the heat up indoors.
If your home has a Carrier system then you know that know that Carrier heat pumps are also central air conditioners that can heat your home and keep your family comfortable no matter what the temperature is outdoors.
Combined with a gas furnace, Carrier systems provide energy use and additional heating options, commonly referred to as Hybrid Heat.
These systems are very efficient, effective and cost conscious, saving money on utility costs, but did you know that you can also safeguard our environment when your system carries a higher SEER and HSPF rating? This is important because the higher the rating, the more efficient the system will be.
A SEER rating is the the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is the measure of the cooling efficiency of your home’s air conditioner or heat pump. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your residential system at converting electricity into cooling power.
HSPF is the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. This is a a measure of the heating efficiency of your home’s heat pump. The higher the HSPF number on the heat pump, the more efficiently the heat pump heats your home, keeping your family comfortable.
Have you checked your home system to make sure that it is running as smoothly as possible? Do you know what your system HSPF and SEER ratings are? Winter is coming to Los Angeles and Ventura and this is the right time to do some basic maintenance to guarantee that your family will be warm and cozy comfortable all winter.
