"For example: if a furnace has an AFUE rating of up to 98%, which means that up to 98 cents of every $1.00 of heating energy expense warms your home. Before purchasing this appliance, read important information about its estimated annual energy…"

"10-12" liners are not made. Biggest made I find is 6" Flue temp on gravity is above 800' most 80% gas or lp are in the 350-380'. If a low end replacement is put in goes from quite to very very noisy"

"Any of the various energy modeling programs would give you a starting place. Model the ducts in various places and with different insulation levels.   I know you will not forget to seal the ducts."

John Nicholas replied to Jignesh's discussion Efficiency of furnace
"That is why gravity systems are much less popular then 50 years ago.   It could easily be improved by installing a chimney liner in that huge masonry chimney to reduce the amount of draft needed and the need for keeping it warm. You could…"
