Stay Warm and Cozy with Bel-Aire’s Energy Efficient Furnaces
We know that the process of choosing a new furnace can be overwhelming and even confusing. At Bel-Aire Heating & Air Conditioning, we will help you select the right energy efficient furnace for your comfort and budget.
Understanding Today’s Energy Efficient Furnaces
Today’s furnaces are much more energy efficient than they used to be. Over 50% of the energy used in an average home is used for heating and cooling; and with the rising cost of energy, saving energy with a high efficiency furnace is saving you money each and every month in utility bills. Furnace efficiency is given an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating which indicates how much heat a furnace produces versus the total energy consumed by the furnace during a year.
For example, new high efficiency furnaces can have a 96 AFUE rating which means that for every dollar that is spent heating your home 96 cents is turned into usable heat and four cents is lost. The higher the AFUE rating, the more money you save over the life of your furnace. Older gas furnaces that utilize pilot lights have estimated AFUE ratings of 55 percent to 65 percent compared to a high efficiency Lennox 98.7 AFUE furnace, it becomes apparent how much you could be overpaying on your monthly energy bills.
A new energy efficient Lennox Ultimate Comfort System eliminates costly ongoing repairs of your existing system while delivering efficiency ratings up to 98.7 AFUE on some units, meaning even greater energy savings for you each month!
