There are many benefits to upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace. A new heating system can help lower monthly energy bills, which means more money in your pocket. It can also provide increased reliability through the cold weather months and a new manufacturer warranty can cover the cost of repair parts. With advances in heating technology, new furnace installations also increase home comfort—providing improved airflow and air quality.While a high-efficiency furnace can be a financial investment, it’s worth the energy savings. New furnace models can have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating are as high as 98%—meaning that only 2% of energy is lost during the heating process. The increased efficiency uses less energy to keep the home warm and therefore can lower monthly hydro bills.
A high-efficiency furnace can also be more reliable and is covered with new manufacturer warranties. With shorter and more efficient on-and-off cycling programs, high-efficiency furnaces don’t have to run for nearly as long, use less fuel and with a DC motor use up 60% less hydro than typical AC models . This results in fewer repairs and issues, but even if there is a problem, the manufacturer warranty covers the cost of most replacement parts.
The main purpose of a heating system is to keep the home warm but a new furnace can also improve airflow, increase indoor air quality and generally make the home feel more comfortable. When bundled with a whole-home humidifier or a new programmable thermostat, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in home comfort.
