Your Guide to Understanding Air Conditioning and Heating Energy Labels

What’s with the yellow tags? 

As you begin considering different types of air conditioning equipment, you might notice some yellow tags or labels on your existing equipment or the new equipment being recommended by your contractor.  These energy guides are regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy to ensure that home owners are informed about the relative energy efficiency of the equipment.

Why should you care?

  • These labels can be helpful when you are trying to compare equipment from one manufacturer to the other.
  • Because of these national regulations, you can be confident that the ratings are accurate and enforced through periodic testing.
  • In addition, you can see from the labels below that a helpful measure is shown so you can see how a system’s efficiency rating compares with the lowest allowed efficiency and the highest available.

Some example labels are shown below with explanations of some of the information contained on them.
