The above calculations are approximations. A more thorough analysis should be done by your dealer. To use this table: 1. Determine the AFUE/SEER of your current system. 2. From the map determine the zone you live in, enter the table and cross reference your zone with the AFUE/SEER of your current system to determine your approximate annual heating/cooling costs. 3. Compare your annual heating/cooling cost to that of a new system with a higher AFUE/SEER. 4. The difference of these two numbers is your estimated annual cost savings. 5. Heating and cooling costs include cycled fan operation. Fan costs are for fans set in ON position to run continuously. Subtract fan cost from total cost if unit is not set up to run continuously. TOO WARM Thermostat Set Point In fact, this furnace uses up to 60% less electricity than an ordinary furnace that constantly cycles on and off. The continuous air circulation of the WeatherMaker 8000VS furnace keeps conditioned air moving throughout your home so you can enjoy consistent indoor weather. With 80% AFUE and up to 60% electrical savings over an ordinary furnace, the WeatherMaker 8000VS furnace delivers exceptional energy efficiency while maintaining your comfort throughout every season. total indoor weather system “on” cycles that last 40% longer than those of an ordinary furnace, the WeatherMaker 8000VS draws air through the furnace filter for longer periods of time to create a cleaner indoor environment.
