Heating Your Home with a Gas Furnace
Heating and cooling are typically a home’s greatest source of energy consumption, resulting in high billing costs. These costs tend to increase during the cooler months as furnaces can consume as much energy as cooling, water heating, lighting, and appliances combined. The good news is there are ways to both measure and enhance the efficiency of gas furnaces.
With more than 20 years of experience dealing with all sorts of heating systems, our Jon Wayne team of technicians have the experience and skill to identify issues common to gas furnaces as well as opportunities for cost-saving and energy-efficient measures.
A home energy audit may reveal that the current system is running at a low annual fuel utilization efficiency, or AFUE. If it is determined that the AFUE is below 80%, it may make financial sense to upgrade to a high-efficiency gas furnace that can perform at up to 97% efficiency. Anything below this level means over 20 cents of every $1.00 is being wasted in the heating process.
