Furnace efficiency is measured in AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ranges of 78%-96%. Traditional "power combustion" furnaces are 80-82% AFUE. "Condensing" type furnaces run above 90% AFUE by recapturing and condensing escaping water vapor.

  • Condensing Models (AFUE 90% or higher)
  • High Efficiency Motors: Fan motors use a significant amount of electricity. You may be able to save hundreds of dollars a year by switching to a "variable speed" type.
  • BTU Size: Choosing the proper size furnace for YOUR SPECIFIC home can make a difference too!

Heating and cooling systems have improved dramatically, and we can help you select the most energy and cost efficient units available. Choosing ENERGY STAR qualified heating and cooling systems could save as much as 14% over the other, less efficient systems. Below are some things to ask your technician about when he arrives to solve YOUR problem:

  • Are your units matched effectively? Installing a new outdoor unit without replacing the indoor unit could be a mistake, and may lead to premature failure of the new compressor unit.
  • Are you using too much electricity running A/C? Using a "Variable Speed" air handler will improve efficiency and provide continuous air filtering and comfortable temperatures at minimum energy cost.
  • Specify R-410 Refrigerant: New and more environ- mentally friendly than Freon (R-22). R-410 is now the refrigerant of choice. Ask your technician about it!
