Steady State-Since most homeowners use their fireplaces for an extended time while they are in the room, Steady State measures how efficiently your fireplace converts fuel to heat once it is warmed up and running in a “steady state”.

AFUE– AFUE rating is more typically used with appliances, like your furnace, that constantly cycle on and off to maintain a constant temperature.
