Furnace Service, AFUE and What They Mean for You in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas

Strange temperature changes and the desire for early spring can mess with us as we wait until the end of the cold season. With the erratic weather this time of year, it’s crucial to double check that your furnace service is done and that your furnace is set for any weather change. Part of owning and operating a furnace is knowing the system and knowing when it might call for repair or maintenance. A furnace’s AFUE (Annual Furnace Utilization Efficiency) is a central measurement to know and can tell you what kind of effectiveness you can look for from your system. If you are unaware of your AFUE, this percentage can be determined at your next furnace tune-up appointment from one of our specialists at Innovative Mechanical, LLC.

So, what does this AFUE rating suggest for you? What sorts of things should you think on with AFUE?


  • The older your furnace is, the littler its AFUE will also be. This means not as much energy efficiency than with a new furnace every winter when your system is in use.
  • Consider your AFUE percentage with regard to money – if your AFUE is 75%, that means that for every $100 you devote to heating your home, only $75 is spent to heat your home.

Considering the age of your furnace and the potential of overspending on your heating costs has hopefully offered some insight into the significance of your furnace’s AFUE. There are many factors that go into selecting a new furnace or remaining with your furnace service plan. Over time though, decreased efficiency levels can drastically influence your energy usage, monthly bills and ease. Don’t ignore the AFUE rating of your furnace and reflect on it when choosing whether it’s time for furnace replacement.
