High Efficiency Furnaces
Did you know that heating your home accounts for almost half of your entire energy usage? That’s a lot – especially when you consider that there are so many great alternatives. Ask your KES HVAC technician to recommend the most efficient furnace for your Wasatch Mountain residence, then watch your bills go down.
How Efficient is Your Furnace?
If your furnace is more than 15 years old, chances are it is inefficient. If it is even a few years old, a new model could provide for more efficiency and lower bills. Also, if your current furnace has a pilot light instead of an electric ignition like many of the newer ones have, you are paying for a lot of wasted gas all year long. Replacing that old unit with a high-efficiency gas furnace will pay for itself in no time.
SHOPPING FOR A NEW FURNACE?
Look for the yellow EnergyGuide label and check the “Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency” (AFUE) rating, ranging from 80% (the minimum efficiency allowed by 2013 regulations) to 98.5% (the highest efficiency rating currently available). This ratio signifies the amount of fuel that is turned into usable heat, so the higher the number the better the efficiency. You might pay a little more up front for those high percentages, but your savings over time will be much greater.
