For most Wisconsin homeowners, home heating is your most costly energy expense. That’s why it makes sense to explore high-efficiency furnaces. With today’s technology, high-efficiency equipment means more of your energy dollars are used to heat your home – not wasted on heat lost up your chimney.
The energy efficiency of a furnace is determined by its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The higher the AFUE, the more heat you receive from the same amount of fuel. If your gas furnace is more than 15 years old, its AFUE rating might fall in the 55- to 60% range. Compare that with a new high-efficiency model: the Lennox SLP98V for example, boasts efficiency ratings as high as 98%.
Over the course of a long, cold Wisconsin winter, that increased efficiency can translate to hundreds of dollars saved in energy bills. Let’s say your annual heating costs currently run about $1200. Replacing your furnace with one that’s 40 to 50% more efficient would save you approximately $500 in a single winter. After just a few years, the furnace will have paid for itself. And the subsequent savings? That’s money in your pocket!
