When shopping for high-efficiency furnaces look for the ENERGY STAR label. If you live in a cold climate, it usually makes sense to invest in the highest-efficiency system. In milder climates with lower annual heating costs, the extra investment required to go from 80% to 90% to 95% in a long run will be justify.
By replacing your old furnace with a new one , more efficient model can combat energy prices, reducing your heating costs by up to 50%. Advancements in heating technology have led to systems that pollute less, boost comfort, and last longer. A twenty to 15 year old furnace typically has an AFUE of about 65%. The lowest efficiency allowed by law for new gas models is 78%, and up there are options that achieve 98%, for near total efficiency.
