Benefits of Upgrading to a High Efficiency Gas Furnace
When you upgrade your old furnace to an Energy Star certified natural gas furnace, you can save up to 40 percent on your utility bill. You will also notice a considerable difference in the air you breathe. That’s because old furnaces usually lack the capability to properly clean and moisturize the air in your home. Over time, the air filtration system may also begin to wear down, causing more dust, pollen and germs to flow through your ventilation system.
Here are three more benefits of upgrading to a gas furnace system:
- Increase your home’s efficiency: Built with the latest technology in the industry, a natural gas furnace consists of a variable-speed blower, which helps maintain even temperatures in your home. They also have efficiency ratings which range up to 98 percent.
- Longevity and reliability: With proper installation and biennial maintenance service, a natural gas furnace can last up to 20 years. And with natural gas, you always have access to it when you need it!
- A lower carbon footprint: As the cleanest burning fuel, natural gas produces about 30 percent less carbon dioxide than oil, and 50 percent less than coal and wood.
