FURNACE EFFICIENCY AFUE (Average Fuel Utilization Efficiency)
AFUE is the standard measurement of efficiency for gas furnaces. Given 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. If a furnace has a rating of 80% AFUE rating, the furnace converts 80% of the fuel that you supply to heat — the other 20% is lost out of the chimney. The most efficient furnaces in the industry have AFUE ratings of up to 96.7%.If you have an older furnace (with an AFUE of approximately 60%), you could save up to 40% on your heating bills by replacing it with a new high efficiency furnace! The cost to replace your old, inefficient furnace is paid back through lower utility bills.
Installing a filter rack under your furnace allows for easy filter changing, which in return will encourage filter changes.
KEEPING YOUR FILTER CLEAN is one of the most important things that you can do to maximize the life of your system and to help in keeping repairs to a minimum.
