Your Guide to Furnace Replacement

Furnace Replacement Atlanta


Now is a great time to replace your furnace by taking advantage of the tax credit opportunities related to the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. Today’s furnaces are also more efficient saving you on average $17 for every $100 spent on heating fuel. So, which furnace is your best choice in Atlanta?

To determine your best choice for your new furnace, you must understand the equipment’s AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating. An AFUE rating is a percentage that measures the energy efficiency of a furnace. For example, if your home has a 65% furnace, you are wasting 35% of the fuel you are paying for to heat your home. Natural gas furnace ratings are:

  • Lowest Efficiency 55-65% AFUE
  • Mid-Efficiency 79-85% AFUE
  • Higher-Efficiency 90% – 97% AFUE

In Georgia, the lowest AFUE rating allowed in 2013 for new furnaces is 80%. If your home’s furnace AFUE is lower than 80%, you need to consider replacement this year.
