Heating Systems and the AFUE Rating

Posted by Derek Pleva on Fri, Feb 12 2016 @ 06:25 PM

According to Energy Star, 29% of the energy use in your home per year is spent using the heating system. Your furnace or boiler is the number one natural gas guzzler in your home, so it should be the unit you target for energy efficiency improvements. Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning offers an affordable and effective service every year that will help you keep your heating costs under control.

How to Increase Your Furnace’s AFUE Rating

Yearly maintenance checks from Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning can have many benefits for your heating system, including improvements in energy efficiency. When you invested in your furnace, it came with an energy efficiency rating or AFUE rating. AFUE measures the efficiency of your unit when converting fuel to energy. As the years go by, if your unit is not maintained properly your system loses its funciontality and its ability to be efficient. But there is a simple solution! A professional cleaning from Four Seasons is designed to help your system keep its AFUE rating. By having the cleaning performed yearly, you can conserve the lifespan of your unit, ultimately saving you money in the long run. 

Inefficient and Unreliable Furnaces

Not having your system clean and check each year is unadvisable. Homeowners that choose to neglect maintenance find themselves with a system that is inefficient and unreliable. Their units experience more breakdowns than systems that are cleaned yearly, and unless you want your system to meet this fate, you need to call Four Seasons. As the frigid winter continues, Four Seasons will be performing services to all neighborhoods across Chicagoland!
