Saving money is always appreciated. But when you find a way to keep your winter heating bills more reasonable, you can breathe a massive sigh of relief. Unfortunately, the cost of natural gas continues to increase, and lowering the temperature in your home to a less comfortable level should only be a last resort. A better solution that will serve you well for many years is a high-efficiency furnace.
What Is A High-Efficiency Furnace
Furnaces are measures on a scale called an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE. Currently, all furnaces must deliver at least a score of 80% on this scale to be sold in the United States. Basically, that means the unit is capable of converting 80 cents of every dollar you spend on heating energy to heat for your home. The other 20 cents worth of energy is wasted. A high-efficiency furnace scores a 90 or better on this scale to reduce the amount of wasted heat and money. The top-of-the-line units earn a 95% or better score to deliver much more cost-effective heating than older units from just a decade ago.
What Does That Mean In Dollars And Cents
Some experts estimate that a high-efficiency furnace will reduce your natural gas bill by as much as 35 to 45%. The critical information is discovering how efficient your current unit is to know how much you will save. If you are looking into a new furnace, it is very likely that your current one is old and not doing a great job heating your home. So you can look forward to significant savings after installing a high-efficiency model. In addition, you will enjoy added comfort in your cozy home this winter and for years to come.
The Benefits Of A High-Efficiency Furnace
You want the best for your loved ones and your home. And when it comes to a new furnace, high-efficiency models deliver many outstanding benefits, including:
