Furnace and boiler systems older than 15 years have efficiencies in the range of 56% to 70%, whereas modern heating systems have a minimum efficiency rating of 80% and can perform at an efficiency rating of up to 98%. Utilizing nearly all the fuel to heat your home, a modern high-efficiency heating system can often cut your energy costs and your furnace's pollution output in half. Upgrading a furnace in an average Chino Hills, Corona, Rancho Santa Margarita, or Yorba Linda home, from 56% to 90% efficiency will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by an average of 1.5 tons for each year of use.

High-Efficiency Heating System Estimated Savings
You can estimate the annual savings from replacing your furnace with a modern high-efficiency unit by using the table on this page. The following chart compares fuel consumption for heating systems of equal capacity. However, most older systems installed in Chino Hills, Corona, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Yorba Linda are oversized for the home and will be especially oversized if you significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home. Consequently, your actual savings in upgrading to a modern high-efficiency furnace could be much higher.
The efficiency of a gas fed furnace is measured in AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency); the higher the AFUE rating, the greater the efficiency of the unit.
AFUE is represented as a percentage of fuel converted to heat energy. For example, a furnace with an 80% efficiency rating converts 80% of the gas introduced into heating energy and the remaining 20% escapes up the flue pipe. That means for every dollar you spend to heat your home, 20 cents go towards hurting the environment instead of heating your home.
The table below shows how much you could save for every $100 you spend on heating your home by switching your old furnace to a high-efficiency model. If you replace a 60% AFUE furnace with a super-efficient 90% AFUE furnace, you stand to save $33.33 for every $100 you spend on heating on your home.
Want to know how much you could save by upgrading you furnace to a high-efficiency unit? Find your last year’s heating bills and do the math, as the old adage goes, numbers don’t lie. You may find that the savings from replacing your old, inefficient, furnace might pay for a new one.

When is it Time to Replace Your Heating System?
Certain telltale signs indicate it's time to consider replacing heating and cooling equipment. It may be time to consider replacing your HVAC equipment if:
Your heating system is more than ten years old.
Consider replacing your furnace with a unit that is ENERGY STAR certified. Installed correctly, these high-efficiency heaters can save up to 50 percent on heating costs.
Your heating equipment needs frequent repairs.
Like any mechanical instrument, with time and usage, your unit begins to wear out. Eventually, it will get to a point where the cost of the repairs outweighs the cost of purchasing a new furnace.
Your heating costs are going up.
Without regular maintenance, a furnace loses about 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation. You may be spending more in inefficient operation than it would cost to replace your heater.
There are significant differences in temperatures throughout your home.
This is one of the most common complaints from homeowners. Improper equipment operation, inappropriately sized furnace, duct problems or inadequate insulation could be the cause.
High or low levels of humidity in your home.
Poor equipment operation, inadequate equipment, and leaky ductwork can cause the air to be too humid during the summer or too dry in the winter.
Your home has excessive dust and funky odors.
Leaky ducts can pull foul air from attics, crawl spaces, and basements and distribute them throughout your home. Sealing your ducts may be the solution.
Your furnace is noisy.
Many factors affect your heating systems sound level ranging from an undersized air distribution system to worn mechanical components.
