Interesting temperature changes and the desire for early spring can let us down as we wait until the end of the cold season. With the erratic weather this time of year, it’s crucial to make sure that your furnace service is done and that your furnace is set for any weather shift. Part of possessing and using a furnace is knowing the system and understanding when it might need repair or maintenance. A furnace’s AFUE (Annual Furnace Utilization Efficiency) is a central measurement to note and can disclose to you what kind of effectiveness you can look for from your system. If you are unsure of your AFUE, this percentage can be clarified at your next furnace maintenance appointment from one of our professionals at E.B. Air, LLC.
So, what does this AFUE rating suggest for you? What types of things should you take into account with AFUE?
- The older your furnace is, the smaller its AFUE will also be. This means not as much energy efficiency paralleled to a new furnace in the winter when your system is in use.
- Consider your AFUE percentage with regard to money – if your AFUE is 75%, that means that for every $100 you devote to heating your home, only $75 is being used to heat your home.
Bearing in mind the age of your furnace and the possibility of overspending on your heating costs has hopefully given some understanding into the weight of your furnace’s AFUE. There are many elements that go into picking a new furnace or staying in your furnace service plan. Over time still, decreased efficiency levels can drastically influence your energy usage, monthly bills and coziness. Don’t overlook the AFUE rating of your furnace and reflect on it when choosing whether it’s time for furnace replacement.
