Understanding Your Furnace Energy Efficiency

Happy 2020! This year, we want to help improve your vision for saving money on HVAC expenses. Here at Heat Relief, we love to help our Portland community reduce costs and improve efficiency. One way you can do this is to better understand your Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (or AFUE).

What is AFUE?

The name “Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency”is pretty self-explanatory compared to some other HVAC terms. The AFUE measures the level of efficiency with which your furnace utilizes its fuel. The more efficient your furnace runs, the more heat your home will get per unit of fuel.
