AFUE (Annual fuel utilization efficiency) is a metric used to measure furnace efficiency in converting fuel to energy. A higher AFUE rating means greater energy efficiency. 90% or higher meets the Department of Energy's Energy Star program standard.

Cooling Equipment: Low Temperature

A/C unit not tested (or heat pump in the cooling mode) when the outdoor temperature is below about 60F or risk damaging or slugging the compressor.  The problem is that the refrigerant may begin to condense (become liquid) within the compressor and damage or ruin the valves, piston, etc.  Liquids are not compressible and the compressor is designed to compress gaseous refrigerant not liquid refrigerant.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding.
