Furnaces are rated with efficiency levels. How are air conditioners rated?

Air conditioners are rated by a metric called the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER Rating. A higher SEER rating implies greater efficiency for your air conditioner, meaning your air conditioner requires less energy to cool your home. Dividing the cooling output during a typical cooling season by the amount of electrical energy input in that season will give you the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.

Heating Questions

What is an energy-efficient furnace?

An energy-efficient furnace requires less energy to make the same amount of heat, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. The efficiency of a furnace is measured by the annual fuel utilization efficiency, or AFUE.

How often should I change my furnace filter?

Roughly every one to three months, depending on the size of your filter. A dirty or clogged furnace filter can make it more difficult for air to move through, causing your furnace to work harder. This also means the air coming through will be of poor quality.

Do I need a permit to replace/install HVAC equipment?

Yes. In Michigan, a permit is required for almost all HVAC mechanical work according to LARA. FLAME never performs any work without proper permits.
