Many people wonder if a high efficiency furnace is better than a standard furnace. When you consider the fact that your home heating and cooling represent 50% of your monthly electric bill, it is well worth it to take a look at energy efficiencies when looking to upgrade or replace your furnace.
What makes a furnace qualify as a high efficiency furnace?
A high efficiency furnace is a heating system that converts most of its fuel source into energy while minimizing losses or wasted heat. The biggest advantage of buying a high efficiency furnaces has to do with the savings on your monthly utility bill. The higher the efficiency, the greater the savings.
We recommend buying the highest efficiency furnace that you can afford. The biggest mistake a homeowner can make is settling for a less efficient furnace and not considering the total cost of ownership. A furnace with lower efficiency is going to cost you more money to operate, which is why we help you look at the big picture.
We chose American Standard heating and cooling products because of their reputation of reliability and dependability. They are a leading and well-known brand of heating and cooling equipment. They offer high quality and high efficiency furnaces; many are ENERGY STAR® rated.
Let’s start by understanding efficiencies.
Furnaces are measured by AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) which indicates how efficient the furnace is at heating your home. This determines how much fuel is needed to heat your home and ultimately how much money you pay out in your monthly utility bill.
The larger the number the higher the efficiency of the furnace. A high efficiency gas furnace has AFUE ratings of 90% or higher, up to a maximum of 98.5% AFUE.
Benefits of buying a high efficiency furnace:
- They use less energy, which will save money on your monthly utility bills.
- They help reduce your carbon footprint by emitting less greenhouse gases, making them environmentally friendly.
- High efficiency furnaces run longer and at lower fan speeds, making them less noticeable and offering better overall indoor comfort.
- They often have longer lifespans than traditional furnaces, as long as they are properly maintained.
