Heat It Up With a Furnace Replacement!
If you’re like most American homeowners, you’re spending 40% to 50% of your total energy expenses on heating and cooling. That’s why it pays to install the highest energy efficiency furnace you can find. It may cost a bit more up front, but it’ll pay off in the long run because the cost of fuel to run a furnace over its lifespan dwarfs the cost of the furnace itself. Not all new furnaces are high efficiency; be sure that you know what you’re getting if you’re looking to conserve energy.
The efficiency rating of a furnace indicates what percentage of the generated heat actually gets into your home’s air. In the case of a less efficient furnace, more than 35% of the heat you pay for might go up the chimney to heat the sky!
Conversely, a 96% efficient furnace only loses 4% of the heat generated. A pvc (plastic) exhaust pipe dispensed from the side wall of your home can be used in this case due to the lower levels of heat being passed outside. You’ll spend much less money heating your home when you actually keep the heat inside!
A new furnace can mean a new fuel type!
A furnace heater uses a ductwork system to distribute hot air throughout your house by a large fan in the furnace. At the same time, the fan pulls cooler air back to the furnace through return ducts, allowing the air to be reheated.
For most homeowners, the type of furnace installed in your home depends on the type of fuel that is available locally. However, when installing a new furnace, it is possible to switch fuel types. You could replace an oil furnace with propane or natural gas furnace if these fuels are available locally.
