When you are purchasing a furnace, one of the major home appliances for your house, you want to make sure it’s going to work as long as possible and have a minimal operation cost as well as minimal repair cost. High efficiency furnaces will properly warm your home with less operation cost than traditional furnaces, and save you more money down the road. Here are some of the factors to look into when choosing high-efficiency furnaces for your house.
Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE): This is in a percentage form, which indicates what the percentage of energy consumed is converted into warm air to heat your home.
Energy Guide: This rating to determine how energy-efficient the furnace is and how the high-efficiency furnace will affect your utility bill.
What climate do you have at where you live? The colder your winters are, the better a high efficiency furnace will work for you, as the energy saving is in percentage rather than a fixed amount.
What kinds of rebates are available for purchasing the furnace? These can help you when deciding how much money to spend on your furnace, and what amount of money can be saved by applying for rebates. Find out more information on how to obtain rebates & what are the requirements.
