Furnace design has advanced in recent years to be far safer and more efficient than older designs. This is the result of improvements in the burner, the ignition, and the blower motor. Furnace heating efficiency is measured by an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.

Chances are you didn’t purchase or install your existing unit.

  • Proper Ventilation – Your duct work needs to be sealed properly and venting properly. Often over looked by other heating contractors, we’ll make sure to do a proper evaluation of your ductwork as well.
  • Compare Costs – A higher efficiency units typically costs more than lower efficiency units, however; you’ll reap the rewards over time as an ENERGY STAR® or high efficiency gas furnace usually pays for itself because of the saving in operating cost.
  • Choose The Right Contractor – At the end of the day, the most important step in replacing your home’s heating system is choosing the right contractor. No matter what brand name you choose, the comfort, reliability and energy efficiency it provides is in the hands of the contractor installing it.
