Choosing the right replacement furnace for your home is essential in creating the comfortable atmosphere your family wants. While being comfortable is important, you should also consider energy efficiency and cost as priorities as well. Shamrock Heating & Cooling carries brand name, energy efficient furnaces.
Although Electric and Oil Furnaces are still available, Forced Air Furnaces that utilize propane or natural gas, are generally the most efficient and economical method of heating. Forced Air Furnace Energy Efficiency is measured according to how efficiently each unit produces heat. This measurement is known as the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE. AFUE is determined by comparing the amount of fuel consumed to the amount of heat created. For example, an AFUE of 80 % means that 80 cents of each dollar is being converted into effective heat, while 20 cents is essentially wasted.

The amount of heat that is required to properly and efficiently heat your home to a comfortable level is measured by the term “BTU’s”. BTU’s, or British Thermal Units, can be defined as the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one (1) degree Fahrenheit. Though proper sizing and selection of a furnace for your home is based on many factors, the AFUE and BTU considerations are among the most important.
