AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). This is the rating assigned to your furnace. The higher this number, the more efficient your furnace is. We’d recommend anything in the 90’s (i.e. 92, 94, 96…).
Along with your furnace’s AFUE rating, take a look at the blower motor type. You should always try to go for one that is super-efficient such as an ECW or variable speed motor.
SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). Your air conditioning system has an energy efficiency rating system too! A SEER rating of 16 or higher will see significant energy savings throughout the lifetime of the system.

Highly efficient systems are also tax deductible up to certain dollar amounts.
Savings are subject to change and are based on several variables and circumstances. Give us a call if you have questions!
