Call the Experts at C&C for Heating System Replacement & Installation in Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex Counties
When New Jersey homeowners try to lower their heating bills, they often start by turning down the thermostat, changing the direction on ceiling fans, closing off unused rooms, and ensuring doors and windows are tightly closed. Those steps help, but they can only do so much if your heating system is old and inefficient.
The average furnace lasts between 8 and 12 years. Even if your system isn’t that old, it probably isn’t as efficient and reliable as today’s new heating systems, so your monthly heating bills are higher than they need to be. Replacing your existing heating system can improve your comfort and cut your monthly costs!

How Efficient Is Your Current System?
The efficiency of furnaces and boilers is measured by what’s known as annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). The AFUE is a number that summarizes how much of a system’s fuel becomes heat for the home and home much is wasted. The higher the number, the better. For example, many of today’s models have an AFUE of 98, which means 98 percent of the fuel they take in becomes heat. If you have an older furnace with an AFUE of just 60, that means 40 percent of the fuel you’re paying for is simply wasted!
According to the federal Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, furnaces generally have the following efficiency ratings:
- Current all-electric furnaces or boilers typically have 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.
Keep in mind that the AFUE does not include the waste that happens through leaks in your duct system or piping. Even if you choose to not go all-electric, a new gas or oil system will still deliver considerable savings on your monthly heating costs.
