The above figures are based on fuel and electricity costs as of June 2018. Efficiency values are averages of commonly installed equipment. An average home is considered to be a 3,000 square foot, detached house built after 1990 with a total BTU requirement of 85,000,000.
*VRF – a Variable Refrigerant Flow heat pump system uses variable speed fans and compressors in order to adjust the output of the system to match demand. This significantly increases efficiency and improves comfort in the space.
It is important to be aware that the above performance ratings are based on ideal operating conditions. It is only possible to achieve these efficiencies by using industry best practices and following manufacturers installation instructions. ‘Cutting corners’ can drastically reduce the performance of the equipment and can lead to operation and maintenance issues.
