Are You Looking To Save On Heating Costs This Winter?
Installing a new furnace is a costly undertaking. Before you assume the need for a new system, you need to think about a few things first. Look at these ideas from Energy.gov:
- Use drapes or plastic film to cover drafty windows
- Try adjusting the thermostat
- Seal air leaks around windows and doors
- Have a qualified HVAC tech do maintenance on the system
- Take steps to block heat loss through a fireplace
- Replace the heating system
An Efficient Furnace Will Help You Save on Heating Your Home in Salt Lake City
After going through that list, you may still think you need a new furnace. Furnace efficiency has improved drastically over the past few years. A highly efficient furnace manufactured today can have an efficiency rating of 97%. That means for every $1 spent on fuel 97% of it turns into heat. Older furnaces are often only 65% efficient. Replacing that old furnace with a new one could save you 32% on the cost of fuel. That gives you more heat for keeping your family comfortable.
