We also offer furnace and heat pump repair and maintenance. Today, gas furnaces offer efficiency ratings of up to 98% AFUE. That means they can use 98% of all gas consumed to produce heat. This will save you money on future gas bills.
How it Works
A standard furnace, with an AFUE of 80 to 85 percent, has only one heat exchanger to extract the warmth produced by the gas burner. As the AFUE indicates, only 80 percent of the available heat is circulated back into your home – the rest turns into water vapor that’s exhausted outdoors through the flue pipe.
In a high-efficiency furnace, with an AFUE of 90 percent or higher, a secondary heat exchanger will evaporate that water vapor a second time to pull out nearly all the available heat. If you invest in a 96 AFUE furnace, only four percent of the available heat is wasted.
Forced-air furnaces manufactured 20 years ago had AFUE ratings of 60 percent or less. And if your home still has an old “gravity-flow” furnace with no blower fan, more than 70 percent of the heat can be wasted.
New furnaces will also have other energy-smart features like electronic pilot light ignitions, sealed combustion units and vent dampers.
