Minimize Labor and Costs
Our professionals can look at your particular house – its size, configuration, age – and help you determine the best and most cost-effective way to heat it. The first question to hash out is the kind of fuel you should use: gas or electric. Most homeowners stick to whatever their homes already had to minimize the labor and costs associated with extra installation of things like duct work or running electric lines.
Efficiently Heating Your Home
Regardless of fuel type, you’re going to want to consider how efficiently your furnace heats your home. Furnaces all must come with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating that spells it out for you. For the most part, higher ratings equate to less fuel consumed. Mid-efficiency furnaces operate at 80%-83%. High-efficiency furnaces operate closer to 96%. The federal government encourages fuel efficiency by giving the best-performing furnaces their Energy Star rating, essentially their seal of approval. Gas furnaces with the Energy Star perform at 90% or better in southern states.
