Everything You Need to Know About High Fuel Efficiency Furnaces

Many homeowners these days are opting for a more energy-efficient way to heat their entire home and save themselves some money. They are doing this by investing in high-efficiency furnaces that use less energy and still heat the home thoroughly. On top of its efficiency, these furnaces are also known for having unique features that many in the home absolutely love. An old furnace will have to be replaced anywhere between 13 and 20 years. These new furnaces, however, last for a long time and remain efficient throughout its entire lifespan.

Fuel Efficiency Ratings

The current measurement for exactly how fuel efficient a furnace is known as an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. New furnaces all have this rating available, usually on a yellow label tagged “EnergyGuide” from the Federal Trade Commission. The label will list the estimated cost per year to operate the furnace under the right conditions. This is the first step in comparing different high-efficiency furnaces to ultimately purchase your own.

Saving Money Monthly

Seeing as this specific type of furnace has been dubbed “high-efficiency” it would make sense that they save hard-working people a bit of money on their monthly energy bills. With a low-performing model of furnace, your home is wasting up to 20 cents per dollar to heat the entire house. That money can add up quite quickly with how expensive energy is today. A high-efficiency model wastes less heat overall and costs less to operate, saving you money all around.
