How Much Can You Save By Upgrading To A More Energy Efficient Furnace or Heat Pump?
AFUE standards for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. Every furnace or boiler has an AFUE rating representing its energy efficiency. The AFUE rating shows what percentage of the fuel consumed by your heating system is converted into useable heat for your home. The higher the number, the more efficient the use of fuel. Air source heat pumps use HSPF (Heating Season Performance Factor) to represent their energy efficiency. Also here, a higher number equates to higher efficiency. Learn more about AFUE, HSPF and furnace efficiency.
The AFUE Savings Calculator can help you answer these questions:
- How much does my current heating system cost to operate?
- How much can I save by upgrading to a higher efficiency heating system (furnace, boiler or air source heat pump) of the same fuel type?
- Will I save money by switching to a different fuel type (natural gas, oil, propane, or electricity)?
