Save Money by Investing in Efficiency
Gas-fired furnaces range in their energy efficiency and they are ranked based on their respective Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). AFUE is the standard measurement of efficiency for gas and oil-fired furnaces. Measured in percentages, this number tells you how much of your fuel is used to heat your home and how much fuel is wasted. The higher the AFUE rating, the greater the efficiency.
Hayes Heating & Cooling actively promotes higher AFUE furnaces to help reduce our customers’ monthly operating costs and conserve fossil fuels. We do not actively promote ourselves as a “Green” company, however, our actions prove that we are time and time again. We prefer to install hi-efficiency equipment because it provides increased comfort, decreased monthly costs and exceptional reliability.
The minimum rating for a gas furnace today is 80% which is ahead of furnaces installed just 20 years ago that were usually 65%-70% efficient. We offer furnaces that convert $0.95 of every $1.00 you spend on gas energy into heat for your home.

How often should I change my filter?
For Standard 1″ Filter Owners
We tell our customers they should use a standard 1″ pleated air filter and to change it every 30 days. Expensive and dense 1″ media filters that claim you can change them every 90 days will typically clog before that time and your system will perform poorly. Buy several at once to keep handy so you never run out!
For Media Filter Owners
Large media filters (4-5″) can usually go upwards of six months before requiring a change. However, factors such as the amount of people, pets and air leakage can greatly alter your requirements.
How often should I add freon to my AC?
Freon is not “used up” or need to be changed out during the course of a summer. Freon is only added if there is a leak in the system or a new unit needs to be properly charged after installation (if a unit is installed over the winter, we like to come back in the spring to accurately charge it.)
When and how often should I have my furnace or air conditioner checked?
Furnaces and air conditioners should be checked on an annual basis for safety reasons such as carbon monoxide poisoning and electrical shock. Most warranties require that an annual inspection be performed (clean & check) on the equipment to keep the warranty valid.
Equipment that is routinely serviced will last much longer and problems that may be discovered during the course of a clean & check can be addressed before they become costly repairs.
What is an “80% furnace”?
Furnace ratings measure the amount of gas being wasted. That means basically 80% is being used and 20% is going out the flue (heat loss), thus 90% furnaces are sending 10% out of the flue. However 80% is the lowest rating that can be purchased today. Most older furnaces are currently operating at 60% to 70%. We almost always recommend a high-efficiency furnace unless installation of the flue pipes proves to be unfeasible.
What is an Condenser (AC) SEER rating?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The SEER rating is calculated by dividing the cooling capacity of a continuously operating air conditioner by the electrical input. The higher the SEER rating, the less your equipment will cost to operate year after year.
