How Can You Tell If You Have A High-Efficiency Heating System?
The AFUE rating of the heating system should be checked. AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a rating that indicates how efficient a heater is. Energy efficiency is calculated by dividing the amount of fuel consumed by the amount of heat output.
A heater with an AFUE rating of 95% converts 95% of the fuel into heat and wastes only 5%, which usually goes through the vents. Compared to an 80% AFUE-rated heater that wastes around 20% of fuel, this system is highly efficient.
The AFUE rating of a heating system can be found on its label. If you don’t see the AFUE rating on the label, or if you can’t find the label, the AFUE rating can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
