HEAT YOUR HOME EFFICENTLY WITH A NEW FURNACE
Replacing the old furnace in your home with a new, more efficient model can offset rising energy prices. Money aside, today's furnaces pollute less and boost comfort by producing heat more steadily than older furnaces. Gas (natural or propane) is the most common heating fuel and a new high-efficiency furnace can reduce your average heating bill by approximately 25%.
The furnace's specifications should fit your needs. A furnace that's too small won't keep your house comfortable during extremely-cold weather.
To be sure of correct sizing and a proper installation, choose a reputable contractor like Country Hearth & Chimney, who will take the time to calculate your heating needs according to an industry standard. These calculations will take into account the climate, size, design, and construction of your home.
Once the furnace is installed, call us to maintain it regularly to ensure maintenance is done according to the manufacturer's recommendations. When customers ask us about the most common reason for furnace break downs, it is undoubtedly improper maintenance.
Efficiency Also Matters
How efficiently a furnace converts gas into heating energy is reflected in its annual fuel-utilization-efficiency (AFUE) rating, which is measured as a percentage. Our furnaces, depending on the size hold up to 97% AFUE rating. Considering the environment, high efficiency furnaces generate fewer emissions. Helping the environment and your wallet at the same time!
Furnaces have become increasingly more energy-efficient over the years. A gas furnace made in the early 1970s typically has an AFUE of about 65 percent.
