Energy Efficient Furnaces
The energy efficiency of furnaces is measured by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratio. Federal regulations mandate a minimum of 78 percent AFUE for manufacturers. Today, there are energy efficient furnaces on the market with up to 98.5 percent AFUE. As of May 3013, the Department of Energy will require that all new furnace installations have a minimum 90 percent AFUE.
We carry a large product line of energy efficient furnaces with AFUE of 90 percent and above. Although the higher AFUE furnaces are more expensive, these energy efficient heating systems can save you up to 40 percent in energy bills. Most people recoup the upfront costs within just several years in energy savings. In addition, there are utility company, manufacturer, federal, state and local programs that offer tax credits and rebates on the higher efficiency furnaces.
