The efficiency of any furnace is measured in Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The AFUE shows how much of the fuel you pay for is actually turned into usable heat. The higher the AFUE, the less fuel you’ll need to keep your home comfortable. If you have a furnace that is at least 10 years old, it probably has an AFUE somewhere between 60 and 70 – meaning up to 40 cents of every dollar you pay for fuel is wasted.
The furnaces offered by Gulfshore offer reliable comfort and are, most importantly, safe and simple when it comes to operation. All furnaces we sell are 80% AFUE, so you’ll be getting a high efficiency furnace that will keep your home comfortable for many years to come. Furnaces come with hot surface igniters which means the burners start electronically. No fuel-burning pilot lights. Multi-port in-shot burners are also employed to make sure you’re getting the maximum heat while using the least amount of fuel.
It can be difficult knowing which residential furnace model is right for you. Do you go with the best of the best and go Platinum or do you go with the solid and durable Silver series? Let Gulfshore help you make that choice. We’ve been voted best HVAC business by readers of The Emerald Coast for the past decade.
