Turning down the thermostat, changing the direction on ceiling fans, closing off unused rooms, ensuring doors and windows are tightly closed. These are all helpful tips to bring down wintertime energy costs, but they won’t make much of an impact if your heating system is old and inefficient.
Most furnaces last between 15 and 25 years. If you have an older system, you will not enjoy the same efficiencies of a newer system. Not only will the old system struggle to keep you warm, but it will also mean higher monthly heating bills.

The efficiency of a central furnace or boiler is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). The AFUE basically tells consumers how much of the system’s fuel becomes heat for the home and home much is wasted. The higher the number, the better. Today’s furnaces are required by the Federal Trade Commission to have their AFUE displayed.
According to the federal Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, furnaces generally have the following efficiency ratings:
- An all-electric furnace or boiler has an AFUE between 95 and 100.
- New, high-efficiency gas furnaces have an AFUE between 90 and 98.5.
- Older heating systems have an AFUE between 56 and 70.
Can you imagine how much money is wasted daily if almost half of the furnace’s work never becomes heat for your home? Keep in mind also that the AFUE does not include the waste that happens in the duct system or piping. Even if you choose to not go all-electric (there are good arguments why that might not be the best solution for your home), a new fossil-fuel system will still offer considerable savings on your monthly heating costs.
