Understanding Furnace Energy Efficiency: AFUE
A furnace’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), which determines how efficient the appliance is in converting the energy in its fuel to heat.
AFUE is the ratio of annual heat output of the furnace compared to the total annual fossil fuel energy consumed by a furnace. An AFUE of 90% means that 90% of the energy in the fuel becomes heat for the home and the other 10% is lost.
AFUE is an important factor to consider when deciding on a furnace for your home. However, there are other factors that are also critical to your decision.
Price of a Furnace Installation
The price of furnace installation varies depending on several factors, like the size, efficiency and type of furnace you choose.
