Convert HSPF To COP: Calculating COP From HSPF Rating (Heat Pumps)

The energy efficiency of heat pumps is expressed in COP (Coefficient Of Performance). On the heat pump’s specs sheets and EnergyGuide labels, however, you will only see HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor). Because HSPF directly depends on COP, we can easily convert HSPF to COP. Below, you will find these two very useful resources if … Read more

HSPF5 Vs HSPF4: Why 2 Heat Pump Efficiencies On Specs Sheets?

If you open heat pump specs sheets, you will see the HSPF5 rating and HSPF4 rating. Obviously, we want to know what is the heat pump HSPF rating – denoting the heating energy efficiency – but this HSPF5 vs HSPF4 rating might give us a pause. Let’s explain what both HSPF5 and HSPF4 ratings are … Read more

Amp Hour Calculator: How To Calculate Amp Hours Of A Battery?

With all batteries, we best know amp-hours (Ah) and watt-hours (Wh). This will allow us to estimate how long will a battery run an electric device or evaluate how many amp-hours do you need for running an electric device. That’s why we will look at how to calculate amp hours of a battery. Here’s the … Read more

Dew Point Formula, Dew Point Temperature Chart (+ Calculator)

Dew point has always been difficult to calculate. Namely, the dew point is a temperature at which moisture in the air starts to condensate on the surface (forming dew). This is a classic gas to liquid conversion. To simplify how to calculate the dew point, we are going to look at the dew point formula, … Read more

How To Calculate SEER Rating? Here’s How SEER Is Calculated

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is the most commonly used metric to denote how energy-efficient HVAC units like air conditioners, heat pumps, and furnaces are. We are going to look at how to calculate the SEER rating. The SEER rating is not as easily calculated as the EER rating (Energy Efficiency Ratio). EER … Read more

CFM To CFH: Easiest Conversion You Will Find (+ Calculator)

Converting CFM to CFH is incredibly easy. Both are units that measure airflow. Basically, you just multiply CFM by 60 to get CFH. CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute. 100 CFM airflow means that 100 cubic feet of air is produced by a device in 1 minute. CFH stands for Cubic Feet per Hour. … Read more

SCFM Vs CFM Explained: SCFM To CFM Calculator + Chart

Both CFM and SCFM are units for measuring airflow. That can be an airflow generated by an air conditioner, furnace, ceiling fan, compressor, and other HVAC devices. CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute. SCFM stands for Standard Cubic Feet per Minute. As we see, the only difference between SCFM and CFM is that inclusion … Read more
