What does Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency Rating mean?
The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency Rating (AFUE) which can be found on the manufacturer’s yellow energy guide label is an indicator of the energy efficiency of an HVAC appliance. An appliance with an AFUE of 90 percent or above meets the minimum efficiency required for ENERGY STAR recognition.
We are proud to announce that one of our most popular furnaces, the Coleman CP9C Model, has been named the “Most Efficient Furnace in 2013” by the prestigious journal of Plumbing and HVAC Canada. (p.21)
A few years back, it was rare for people to replace their furnaces until it was time to toss them out into the junkyard. Things are different today, mainly due to technology advancements and increased environmental awareness. It is now common knowledge for homeowners that old furnaces are more costly and less than 50 percent efficient compared to their more modern counterparts.
Homeowners are now able to upgrade to the most efficient models, driven by rebates, better furnaces, and a higher rate of return. Replacing an old furnace with a high efficiency furnace will cut monthly costs by as much as 45 percent. A higher efficiency furnace will also provide you with increased comfort, less noise pollution at a reduced operating cost and overtime, the savings accumulated will pay for the system itself.
