Purchasing a High-Efficiency Furnace
When buying a new furnace you will want to consider the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of the unit. AFUE measures the efficiency of your furnace and is a ratio comparing how much fuel goes into the furnace and how much fuel is actually converted into heat. The most efficient furnaces can achieve an AFUE of 96% to 98%, many of these furnaces will have an ENERGY STAR certified sticker. The minimum AFUE for sale in Canada today is 92% AFUE.
A certified HVAC contractor will be able to assist you with determining which level of energy efficiency and furnace type is best suited for your budget and home heating needs.
