High Efficiency Furnaces

Why you should make the switch & save hundreds!

Mother nature seems to never spare Michigan of the cold, harsh Winter. Not only do our wardrobes have to change hour to hour and day to day but so do our thermostats. All that back and forth and full blast use during those particularly frigid cold snaps can add up to a lot of wear and tear on your dear old furnace. High efficiency furnaces, 90% AFUE or above, can not only lower your utility bill but also improve your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), lowers your carbon footprint, and most models condense. Condensing units have an internal system that removes the moisture, which in turn, extends the life of the equipment. There is no better time than now to be nicer to your home & the planet and with our financing option, there really is no reason not to!

#1 It’s Better For the Environment

A furnace is a pretty essential part of a home and gets a lot of attention and use throughout the year, especially here in Michigan where we can’t seem to stay in just one season a week. You never know when you’ll be in the middle of May and get a cold snap that forces your heat on. Wouldn’t it be nice to stress when the temperature drops about those heat bills anymore? Upgrading to a high efficiency furnace will help you breath easy when the heat gets turned on and help the planet breath a little easier too. Not only will the new equipment lower your monthly bill saving you hundreds per year, it will also lower your carbon footprint. If you think real hard, all the way back to the very beginning of grade school you might be able to recall learning about these “carbon footprints”. A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds released due to using fossil fuels by a group or person. Your new high efficiency lowers your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases created and emitted when it is running.

#2 It Improves Your Indoor Air Quality

High efficiency furnaces also improve the indoor air quality (IAQ). These high efficiency units have electronically commutated motors, also known as variable speed fan motors, which start out slowly and run for much longer periods of time, utilize the furnace’s filtration system far more often and efficiently than your standard furnace. The extra exposure and slow passing through your furnace’s filtration system allows for thorough cleaning of the air in your home. Not only does the variable speed fan motor improve your IAQ and lower your energy bill but it also helps improve the comfort of your home. Standard furnaces are known for large temperature swings due to the simple “On-Off” switch for the fan. The high efficiency unit’s variable speed fan helps to maintain the temperature in your home closer to the set point so you can say goodbye to that drastic temperature drop when the fan shuts off. The fans also can take credit for high efficiency furnaces being much quieter than your standard units. The benefits are endless when you upgrade, and we haven’t even talked about the savings yet!

If you had an average utility bill of $100 a month your new furnace would save you approximately $303 a year switching from 70% AFUE to 95% AFUE!

#4 It Will Save You Hundreds Per Year!

You can save hundreds of dollars per year on your utility bill. As an example, if you currently have a 70% AFUE furnace in your home and you upgrade to a 95% AFUE high efficiency model you will be getting a 25% increase in efficiency. So, if you had an average utility bill of $100 a month your new furnace would save you approximately $303 a year!  You can calculate your estimated savings here https://www.seerenergysavings.com/afue-savings-calculator/
