When it comes to heating your home, you want something efficient, reliable, and cost-effective. As the largest Trane distributor in the state of Ohio, we are proud to rely on Trane's industry-leading technology when it comes to gas-powered furnace appliances. No matter what unit you decide on, it is essential to understand what makes a gas furnace unique and what to look for when selecting a gas heating appliance for your home.

Gas Furnaces With the Highest Heating Efficiency

Gas furnaces are scored and ranked by their AFUE rating, or Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE score measures the amount of heat produced by your furnace and delivered through your central heating’s ductwork to provide warm air to the rest of the home. This is scored in comparison to the amount of heat that is lost during the process. 

An AFUE score of 95% means that 95% of the heat generated by your furnace is successfully delivered to your home. Only 5% of the heat generated is lost during the process for this rating. The higher your furnace's AFUE score, the more efficient it is and the less fuel it will use to heat your home.

When shopping for a high-efficiency gas furnace, you'll see units with anywhere from 80% AFUE to over 98%. Heaters that deliver 96% or more heat efficiency are considered the best of the best. 

Gas Furnaces that Balance Budget & Efficiency

The highest efficiency furnaces have a significant upfront cost compared to some heating methods. However, high AFUE furnaces can save serious money in the long run. The average home spends up to half its monthly energy on heating or cooling its residence. By investing in a high-efficiency furnace, your energy costs are lowered significantly year after year - adding up to big savings.

High-efficiency gas furnaces are also energy star certified, which means they qualify for certain rebates due to their environmentally friendly design. They also contribute to earning a residential energy efficiency credit through federal energy conservation programs.

Finally, high AFUE furnaces are almost universally compatible with smart thermostats. This means it is easy to keep your house toasty and warm while using the lowest amount of energy possible. Traveling, fluctuating weather conditions, and other variables can be accounted for and corrected - saving you even more money on your energy bill.

FAQs :

What is AFUE and what does it mean for your furnace?

Gas furnaces are scored and ranked by their AFUE rating, or Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE measured the amount of heat produced by your furnace and delivered through your ductwork to the rest of the home. This is scored in comparison to the amount of heat that is lost during the process. 

An AFUE score of 95% means that 95% of the heat generated by your furnace is successfully delivered to your home. Only 5% of the heat generated is lost during the process for this rating. The higher your furnace's AFUE score, the more efficient it is and the less fuel it will use to heat your home.

What are the major differences between gas and oil furnaces?

When deciding between gas and oil furnaces, there are a few things to consider. Natural gas furnaces are about the same cost to install but significantly cheaper to fuel and run than oil furnaces. Oil furnaces typically require more maintenance and upkeep from professional technicians. Gas furnaces rank higher in efficiency with higher average AFUE scores compared to oil furnaces. 

Oil furnaces are fueled by storage tanks that must be refilled. Natural gas furnaces on the other hand are hooked up to natural supply lines that provide a constant supply of fuel. While neither has an entirely quiet operation, gas furnaces can be quieter than oil furnaces on average. Both gas and oil heating systems create toxic combustion gasses that must be ventilated out of your home for safety. However, an oil leak is less flammable than a dangerous gas spill if your fuel leaks out. Overall each furnace type has pros and cons that depend on your personal needs and preferences.

How long should a Trane furnace last?

Gas furnaces usually last between 15-20 years, depending on if they receive regular maintenance and proper care. However, Trane has a history of quality products and dependability that can help their units last longer. In the end, combining a high-quality appliance brand like Trane with proper care and service will help maximize your furnace's lifespan.
