Energy Efficient Furnaces and AFUE Ratings

energy-efficiencyAre you looking for ways to save on your utility costs for heating, Chino Valley residents? If so, we can help. The best way to save on your heating costs is to have an energy efficient furnace or heating system installed. Heating system’s energy efficiency ratings are described in their AFUE – Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The AFUE is a measurement of how efficient the heating system is when it converts energy from the fuel it uses to heat. This is evaluated over the course of a year. Currently, the minimum allowed AFUE rating for a non-condensing fossil-fueled, warm-air furnace is 78% (*except those manufactured specifically for use in mobile homes). An energy efficient furnace or heating system is considered to have an AFUE of 90% to 98.5%. With a more efficient system, you will save a significant amount on heating costs, quickly making up for the cost to upgrade. Contact us to learn more.

Yavapai Plumbing and Heating Has Your Back! Their experienced and certified technicians know the best products and use the most up-to-date techniques for Furnace repair and installation.

Below are some of what you want to look for when it comes to using a Furnace to heat your home! The breadth of product knowledge and the necessary training to install the product that matches your need is critical.

 

Size Matters — a lot:

  • The furnace’s specifications should fit your needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t keep your home comfortable during extremely-cold weather.
  • In most homes the furnace was installed over sized too prevent this from happening.
  • A furnace that is over sized is also over priced. It will cycle off and on far to often wearing out the components and wasting energy.
  • One also must be certain that the ducts in your home are matched correctly to the size of the unit and more specifically to the fan speed of the unit.

Efficiency Matters — a lot:

  • Efficiency is measured by the AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) and it is calculated as a percentage
  • Simply put, an 80% AFUE furnace allows 20% of the heat generated to leave your house up the chimney. That is lost money and lost energy.
  • The lowest efficiency allowed by law is 78% Furnace. And for the past 20 years 9 out of 10 companies have been installing only 80% efficient furnaces for home heating purposes
  • And a higher AFUE is another way to Go Green, you are helping yourself and the environment.

Reliability Matters — a lot:

  • When a furnace fails 75% of the failures are significant repairs
  • Over 50% of the 75% broke down completely
  • You need to know the reliability of the model you choose.
  • What the failure rate is can add significantly to the total cost of ownership

Should You Repair or Replace?

  • Improved efficiency of most new furnaces could justify Replacing. Especially, if a key component such as the heat exchanger or control module failed.
  • You are also probably better off replacing the furnace, if the unit is more than 2/3rds of the way through its expected life span. Which on average is 15 years
  • If it is a minor repair and the unit is still young then a repair is called for.
  • Trust Yavapai Plumbing & Heating to give you a staright answer regarding these tough decisions.
