The performance of vapor compression refrigeration cycles is limited by thermodynamics. These air conditioning and heat pump devices move heat rather than convert it from one form to another, so thermal efficiencies do not appropriately describe the performance of these devices. The Coefficient-of-Performance (COP) measures performance, but this dimensionless measure has not been adopted. Instead, the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) has traditionally been used to characterize the performance of many HVAC systems. EER is the Energy Efficiency Ratio based on a 35 °C (95 °F) outdoor temperature. To more accurately describe the performance of air conditioning equipment over a typical cooling season a modified version of the EER, the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), or in Europe the ESEER, is used. SEER ratings are based on seasonal temperature averages instead of a constant 35 °C (95 °F) outdoor temperature. The current industry minimum SEER rating is 14 SEER.
I needed a replacement for my heater. I called Bill Howe and they promptly fitted me into their schedule. The person who arrived, Laurence C. thoroughly tested my furnace and pointed out the problem. I decided to replace it. They arrived on the day to install it. The two men, Jose Gomez and Javier Diaz promptly went to work. They were clean, efficient and respectful of my home. I would gladly recommend Bill Howe for your heating and plumbing needs. They were great!!
