Understand the Efficiency of Your Heating System

The efficiency of your furnace or boiler depends on its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). This is a representation of the annual rate at which your appliance is converting the energy from its fuel into heat and is displayed on your system so you can compare heating efficiencies for various models.
 
In addition to the AFUE, you can also compare your system's efficiency by its equipment features, which include low, mid and high-efficiency heating systems.
 
Not sure which one works for you? Our professionals can help you do the math and will provide you with honest, professional advice for all repairs, retrofitting, and replacements.
