Whats the AFUE Rating on furnaces mean?

Furnace Efficiency Rating

All of today's Furnaces and Boilers efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). To be more specific, AFUE is the ratio of annual heat output of the furnace or boiler compared to the total fossil fuel energy consumed by a furnace or boiler in a year.

For example a furnace rated at 80 AFUE means for every dollar you spend to heat your home 80 cents is returned in heat and 20 cents is lost. The AFUE rating does not include how much heat energy is lost through the ductwork of the heating system. Leaking ducts or duct work running through a cold attic will increase how much is lost. A 80 AFUE rated furnace compared to older furnaces which recover only 45-65 cents worth of heat, these 80 AFUE furnaces are affordable and good choices for your home. To get the maximum worth out of each dollar spent on gas, a 90% plus operating furnace is the best option available. Each dollar spent in turn can bring over 96 cents back in heat to your home.

Dual Fuel Heating systems

A HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system combines the strengths of a gas furnace with an electric heat pump to deliver the comfort and efficiency you need in both warm and cold seasons to give you more control over your utility bills. As outdoor winter temperatures change, the system automatically switches between heat pump and furnace to utilize the most cost-effective fuel source and maintain greater efficiency. Because a HYBRID HEAT system provides the flexibility to work with multiple fuel sources, it provides additional protection from unpredictable fuel cost increases. And the system is so efficient, its heating costs are less than with any gas furnace alone.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems are "the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective space conditioning systems available today." That's because a geothermal system taps into the earth to capture free, renewable energy.

The earth absorbs about 47% of the sun's energy that reaches it, storing that energy in the ground. A geothermal system extracts that free energy for heating during winter. For cooling, the system removes heat from the home and dumps it into the cooler earth. This transfer of heat energy is done through a series of pipes buried in the ground, or sunk in a pond, or by using well water. Because a geothermal system simply moves heat instead of burning a fossil fuel to generate it, it's more energy-efficient.
