Understanding Efficiencies: It’s important for homeowners to understand efficiency ratings. In short, an efficiency rating tells you how much of the total energy used is delivered to your home as heat. The higher the efficiency, the better the furnace functions. For example, a furnace that is 80% efficient delivers 80% of the fuel consumed by the house as heat. The rest, 20% or 20 cents on the dollar, goes up the chimney flue. Your heating bill therefore depend on the cost of the fuel and the efficiency of the furnace.
AFUE: When referring to furnaces, we measure performance by the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency). The higher the number the more efficient the furnace is.
