Are New Furnaces Really that Much Better than Older Ones?

Learn how a new heating and air conditioning system can save you money and keep you more comfortable.

New Furnace After Installation

It’s a tough decision to bite the bullet and purchase a new heating and air conditioning system. But the great thing is that when you make the choice to install a new HVAC, especially if your previous system was decades old, you’ll notice immediate energy savings and better performance, and you may even end up bragging to your friends.

If your furnace is nearing the end of its lifespan, you may have noticed decreased efficiency over time. Sure, your furnace has always cost a lot of money to run, but now that it’s in desperate need of replacement, you’re noticing even higher utility bills month after month. This is to be expected, as the components of a furnace tend to wear down over time, which means they become overworked and need more energy to get the job done. You’ll be amazed by how much less energy a newer HVAC will require to keep your family comfortable.

In fact, your new furnace will probably run much more efficiently than your old one did even when it was brand new. Older furnaces have an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) of about 50-60%, meaning they only use about half of the energy they require to run to actually heat up a home. Newer furnaces are required to have an AFUE of over 80%, which means a large majority of the energy utilized goes towards heating the living space.

You don’t have to put up with an old, worn-out, highly inefficient HVAC any longer. Click this link to connect with our team of experts at Morelli to explore your best options for a new heating and air conditioning system today.
