What about Heater Efficiency Ratings?

All of the heating systems currently sold have at least an 80% AFUE rating, and some can get as high as 95 or 97%. The AFUE rating is the efficiency rating.

As a consumer, you would want the most energy-efficient furnace you can get, but there are a couple of other factors to consider. To begin with, heating systems with a 90+% AFUE rating typically cost significantly more than those rated around 80%. You will certainly save money on your monthly heating bills with the higher-efficiency furnace; the amount you save won’t offset the higher cost of the more efficient furnace unless you use it a lot. 80% is still very efficient, so if you live in a relatively temperate climate, you won’t save enough monthly to warrant the extra initial expense of the higher efficiency system.

We also only install heating systems that we believe are of the highest quality, so you can be sure you’re getting a heating system that will serve you well for many years. Give us a call today and let us know what we can do for you.
