The efficiency rating for furnaces
You’ve probably heard lots of talk about energy efficiency, and how it can save you money on utility bills, but you may not ever have understood what energy efficiency really means. When a heating system is described as 80% efficient, it means that 80% of the energy it uses to produce heat is returned to the household as warmth, while the remaining 20% is essentially wasted. Many older furnaces are only in the neighborhood of 60% efficient, which means nearly half the energy they use goes out the door and accomplishes nothing – except getting you a higher utility bill.
Most of today’s energy-efficient gas furnace models are well over 90% in their efficiency rating, which means almost all of the energy they consume is put to use in warming your household. This of course, will reflect very positively on your monthly bills, because the unit simply uses less energy to heat your household. Over the course of time, a modern and efficient gas furnace can virtually pay for itself by saving you money each month.
