At Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we are committed to educating the community about energy efficiency. Today, we’ve put together a short guide to energy-efficient furnaces in order to show you how this can save you money in heating costs and make you a lot more comfortable in colder weather.
Your older furnace is costing you
Do you seem to make repairs to your heating system year after year? Do you pay high utilities in the winter for a system that doesn’t even keep you as warm as you’d like? It’s time for an upgrade. Your older heating system is costing you, especially if it’s over 10 years old, and it’s using up far more environmental resources than today’s systems have to use. We recommend an upgrade for:
- Any system well over a decade old.
- Furnaces with a standing pilot light.
- High utilities in the winter.
- Repairs that add up to half the cost of a new system.
Today’s furnaces are optimized for performance and efficiency
Whenever you upgrade from a furnace that was decades old, you’re bound to notice an improvement in your monthly bills and in the way the system performs. But if you upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace with a high AFUE rating (over 80%) and the ENERGY STAR seal, you can save even more.
You may also choose a modulating furnace, which uses a variable speed blower and a modulating gas valve that readjusts as needed in order to keep the temperature within one or two degrees of the thermostat settings. This means the room stays more comfortable, and temperatures throughout the home are even, and it also allows for an audible noise reduction. There are more possibilities for new furnace installation than you may know!
