What is AFUE Rating?
AFUE is an abbreviated form of “Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency” which is expressed in a form of percentage. Although it doesn’t directly indicate the energy efficiency, of your furnace, it reflects its overall efficiency calculated for the span of whole year. Nowadays, new generation of furnaces come with a minimum of 78 % AFUE and you can upgrade your old system with a new one with help of Las Vegas Air Conditioning for great energy saving.
How a Furnace Works?
A furnace primarily consists of two main parts… One is heating element and another is blower or fan. While heating element uses fuels like gas, oil or electricity to heat the air present inside your room while the main function of blower or fan unit is to circulate the warm air throughout your room. Blower uses vents to blow the hot air and to draw cool air, which is then heated by heating element.
Why buy a two stage and variable speed furnace?
While traditional furnace always operate at its optimum capacity (burning always the set amount of fuel to get output of maximum BTUs), two stage furnace runs in single stage most of the times (mild winter), hence consuming less fuel. It runs in second phase only when temperature drops a lot (hard winter). So, the temperature swing is comparatively very less than the traditional furnaces that often result in large temperature swings in your home.
With variable speed furnace comes the intelligent technology that offers continuous monitoring of air blown by blower and adjusts its speed accordingly to meet the requirements of consistent flow of warm air throughout your room. With Two stage and variable speed furnace, you not only get more comfort with more energy efficient and quiet heating solutions but also get improved air quality.

Filers for Furnace
Whether you buy a new furnace or not, discuss with your Las Vegas HVAC contractor the type of filter you are using. There is a furnace industry rating system for filters called MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter is. This allows for air to flow freely through your heating system and run less, thus maximizing fuel savings. If you are sensitive to indoor pollutants or suffer from allergies discuss filter options with your HVAC company.
Preseason Furnace Check-Up
Preseason Check up plays very important role to keep your furnace at optimum level of efficiency just before winter starts and thus ensuring the machine capable to sustain extra stress. A thorough check up will also let you know the problems that may arise in future and you can take preventive measures to eliminate such possibilities.
