High efficiency furnaces consume 30 percent less fuel than older, less efficient models. These units offer efficiencies of up to 95 or even higher. However, most homes have heating systems that are operating at only 75 percent efficiency. If you are planning to replace your furnace in the near future, consider upgrading to a high efficiency model.
Regardless of the type of fuel your furnace uses, energy costs are on the rise. By switching to a high efficiency furnace, you can greatly reduce your annual energy costs. Because your furnace will be using less energy, upgrading will also lessen your home’s negative impact on the surrounding environment. Furthermore, high efficiency units are less noisy and tend to heat homes more evenly than their predecessors. When maintained with regular maintenance and cleanings, these units can operate at peak efficiency.
