Tips to Ensure You Have an Efficient Furnace

You might not realize it, but your furnace might not be as efficient as you think. There are numerous things that can affect whether you have an efficient furnace or not and understanding them is essential to how much running your furnace costs you.

An efficient furnace is important to your monthly bottom line, and if saving money is important to you you’ll want to read this.

An Efficient Furnace Starts With…

  • Keeping furniture, curtains and other things away from the vents in your home. If the air can’t properly circulate in your home, your furnace will have to work overtime to warm the rooms in your house.
  • Duct cleaning is essential to allowing the warm air from your furnace to flow freely around your home. If ducts are dirty or have debris in them then airflow is inhibited and your furnace has to work harder to spread the warmth.
  • Clean or replace your air filter. If the air filter in your furnace is dirty then the airflow is restricted and your furnace has to work harder than normal to push air through the filter and then through your home.
  • Annual maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure you have an efficient furnace. An experienced and knowledgable furnace repair and furnace maintenance technician will evaluate your furnace and perform a tune-up to ensure that it’s running as efficiently and reliably as possible. This appointment will also ensure that you avoid as many repairs as possible by addressing any concerns early on before they lead to major repairs and in turn expensive repair costs.

Overall, the HVAC industry has taken steps to improve environmental sustainability. Green HVAC technology is more efficient, will save you money, will last longer and will reduce your carbon footprint compared to older HVAC systems and furnaces in particular.

High Efficiency Furnace

Upgrading To A High Efficiency Furnace

So, it’s finally happened. Your trusty old furnace has kicked the bucket. It’s a sad day in your household, but it doesn’t have to be. Now that you have to replace your old furnace you can install a new high efficiency furnace. A growing trend with our customers in Toronto, York Region and the rest of the GTA is that they’re replacing old furnaces with new high efficiency furnaces. They’re doing so for a number of different reasons.

Save Money With A High Efficiency Furnace

Most people install a high efficiency furnace because they’re sick and tired of their rising energy bills. The government is continually increasing energy prices, so operating your household is constantly getting more expensive. A high efficiency furnace can save you up to 20% or even 30% on your energy bill depending on the size of your home and the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating on your new furnace. The higher the SEER rating on your new high efficiency furnace, the less energy it will use.

An Eco-Friendly High Efficiency Furnace

It might seem fairly obvious, but a high efficiency furnace is more environmentally friendly than other furnace models. Simply put, they use less energy to heat your home and in doing so reduce your carbon footprint. There are also models that work at two stages depending on your needs and these models operate very efficiently to provide your family with warmth all winter long.

How Reliable Is A High Efficiency Furnace?

When you install a new high efficiency furnace you might wonder if it’s going to be as reliable as your trusty old furnace that lasted for 20 years and never let you down. Are newer furnaces built as well as older ones? The truth, is they are built even better, which means they’re even more reliable. Furnace manufacturers these days have taken advantage of years of insights and technology to develop furnaces that last. They do require annual maintenance to ensure they’re running as efficiently as possible, but with advanced computer systems keeping everything in check the chances of a breakdown are significantly reduced.

How Affordable Is A High Efficiency Furnace?

Depending on the size of your home and your needs every homeowner can afford a high efficiency furnace. While they are more expensive when it comes to up front costs, high efficiency furnaces save you money in the long-term with lower energy bills and fewer repair costs. Overall, their upfront cost is easily offset by their benefits and other savings.
