What is a furnace?

A warm air system uses a furnace to deliver the heat throughout the home. The air is heated in the furnace and a blower forces it into a duct system. The warm air is then released into your home, through vents or registers in your walls, ceilings or floors. ​

What is AFUE?

AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a rating system that measures how efficiently a furnace converts fuel into usable energy over the course of an entire heating season. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient the furnace and the more fuel converted into heat for your home. Higher efficiencies also mean less fuel is wasted, which is a smart choice not only for your wallet, but for the environment. Because certain American Standard gas furnace models can achieve up to 97.3% AFUE, you'll find that choosing one can be comforting in more ways than one.

The ENERGY STAR program is a joint effort between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy designed to help consumers identify energy-efficient products. When you see the ENERGY STAR symbol, you know your heating system will help reduce your energy consumption and help the whole planet stay comfortable.

When you combine an efficient multi-stage American Standard gas furnace with a reliable, hardworking American Standard heat pump you create a Dual Fuel system with the flexibility to heat your home with either gas or electricity, based on whichever is most efficient at the time. So you're always using the most cost-effective fuel to stay comfortable.

And energy smart.
