Save Energy with High Furnace Efficiency
When buying a brand-new home furnace, the main characteristic that you should look at is the furnace efficiency. The efficiency of furnace is the value that shows how well a home furnace performs with a given amount of fuel. It is better to have a furnace with high efficiency because this means that the furnace uses less fuel in operating compared to other furnaces with lower efficiencies.
Furnaces may have different source of fuel but their efficiency can be the factor that you can use to compare their performances. The common type for home furnaces are:
- 1. Wood furnace
- 2. Gas furnace
- 3. Oil furnace
- 4. Electric furnace
- 5. Pellets furnace
- 6. Water furnace
The amount of fuel that a furnace used in an entire year which shows the heat output compared to the total energy used is measured by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). This rating shows how much fuel is consumed by a furnace per operation for the entire year. This is usually in percentage and the higher the percentage is, the higher the furnace efficiency. Nowadays, furnace manufacturers are required to print the AFUE of every furnace that they create. This is to make the efficiency furnace more transparent to consumers.

Buy a High Efficiency Furnace
Always aim for a furnace with high efficiency. Though this may cost you a little more when buying it, using and maintaining it will show you some savings. When you use your furnace for a long time, you can be able to save from the fuel it uses. In addition to that, high furnace efficiency will allow you to contribute for the betterment of the environment because it uses less fuel but operates longer.
