How old is your furnace?
If it’s 15 years (or older), it could still be working, but it’s likely not very efficient. You will increase home comfort and decrease monthly energy bills by upgrading to a new high-efficiency furnace.
Furnaces have become more efficient as technology has evolved. 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 (with 20% of the fuel used being wasted). Increased efficiency translates into lower monthly energy bills.
Cost of Installing a New High-Efficiency Furnace
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/or manufacturer discounts for upgrading that can offset the cost. Additionally, you’ll save money in the long-term on lower utility bills. View our current furnace promotions.
Another benefit of upgrading to a new furnace now is that you can avoid a mid-winter furnace breakdown. As heating systems age, they become less reliable and could leave you and your family in the cold when it decides to finally stop working.
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.
