Forced air furnaces
Forced hot air furnaces are probably the most well-known among homeowners for heating, likely due to the relatively low upfront costs compared to other alternatives. They are a fuel powered heating source, either by home heating oil, natural gas or propane.
Furnace efficiency is measured by the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating. If a furnace has an AFUE of 75, then 75% of the heat produced goes to heating the home while 25% is wasted. Not too many years ago furnaces with an AFUE of 50 to 70 percent were common. Today, an AFUE rating of 80% is considered a minimum and high-end models can be as much as 98% efficient. Replacing your older model furnace alone can save you hundreds of dollars annually on home heating costs.
So, what’s the right number?
The Merts Comfort Specialist will show you several furnace options based on overall efficiency. Once you see the range of heating cost-savings you can achieve with each one, you can choose which heating option investment best fits your needs and budget.
