With winter being only a few weeks away, your furnace is going to have to start working harder to keep the home warm. Protecting your family from the cold is obviously a high priority and if you’re still relying on a decade old heating system, investing in a new high-efficiency furnace can help ensure your home stays warm while also lowering monthly utility bills.
If your current heating system is 10 or 15 years old, you’re going to want to consider upgrading to a new high-efficiency furnace this winter. Even if it’s still working, it’s probably not distributing even heating throughout the house and it’s definitely not as efficient as newer models. The AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating measures how efficiently fuel is converted to heat. New high-efficiency furnaces are nearly 100% efficient, while older models can fall into the 80% range. Increased efficiency translates into lower monthly energy bills.
The major question homeowners have when it comes to upgrading to a new heating system is how much it will cost. The initial cost of a high-efficiency furnace is an investment, but there are usually rebates and manufacturer discounts for upgrading that can offset the cost. Additionally, in the long term, a homeowner can save money on utility bills.
Make sure you and your family stay warm this winter and help lower monthly bills by upgrading to a new high-efficiency furnace. Just because you’re old heating system turns on, doesn’t mean it’s efficiently keeping your home warm.
