Is a High-Efficiency Furnace Worth the Cost?

When you get started reviewing high-efficiency furnaces in Ontario, OR, you might notice a higher price. And you’ll usually quiz yourself whether the additional cost will be beneficial. We can provide an answer to that question for you.

It can be challenging to notice the benefits of a high-efficiency furnace from only a day-to-day point of view. When you consider your gas bill accounts for more than half your utility bill, you may know why increasing efficiency is a wise decision.

How Do I Determine a Furnace’s Efficiency?

You’ll realize that furnaces indicate an AFUE ranking, or Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency ratio. It determines the percentage of heat made for each dollar of energy.

If your equipment has an 80 AFUE rating, that indicates 80% of fuel is transformed to heat, while 20% is lost as it changes. The higher the AFUE rating, the less fuel will be lost as your furnace heats your home.

Environmental Impact of a High-Efficiency Furnace

By installing a high-efficiency furnace, you aren’t just benefitting your home. According to ENERGY STAR®, “If every gas furnace sold in the U.S. meets the improved ENERGY STAR requirements, consumer energy cost savings would increase about $171 million annually and annual greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced comparably by that from about 177,000 cars.”

That’s a sizeable effect.

It’s also crucial to think about while early expenses are higher, you will receive a return once your energy bills start going down. And what’s a wiser investment than your home comfort? Our pros can also see if there are tax credits available to decrease the cost of a high-efficiency furnace.
