What is AFUE?

AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. For your gas furnace, it is a measurement of how much gas you get from the heating system into your home. If you have an AFUE of 80%, then 80 cents of every $1 you spend on gas actually goes into your home as heat. If you have an AFUE of 95%, then 95 cents of every $1 you spend on gas becomes heat. This measurement does not account for the electricity used to run the motor. Therefore, you would benefit from using a variable speed motor.
