What to Expect When You’re Getting a New High Efficiency Furnace
Posted on | Furnace Basics
If your current furnace is on its last years, you might want to consider upgrading to a new furnace. At Action Furnace, we recommend high efficiency furnaces for the level of comfort they bring, the money you can save and for their potential to increase your home’s overall value. Learn more about what you can expect when getting a high efficiency furnace.
One of the best things about high efficiency furnaces is their electronic ignition technology, which eliminates the need for a pilot light. The advantage of this new technology is that you can save energy because the pilot light isn’t constantly burning. Another benefit of electronic ignition technology is that it gives your furnace a higher annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating.
In addition to the electronic ignition technology that high efficiency furnaces have, they’re also made with automatic vent dampeners. By limiting fuel usage and shutting the fuel pipe, high efficiency furnaces offer more thermal efficiency. Now you don’t have to worry about wasting fuel when you furnace isn’t in use. The vent dampeners also contribute to a higher AFUE rating and better energy efficiency.
Regulated Air Circulation
Once an Action Furnace HVAC technician installs your more efficient furnace, you won’t have to worry as much about air flowing freely through your system. The advantage of this regulating feature is the combustion process is that much safer, and your unit also operates that much more efficiently.
Rather than focus on the overall cost of a more efficient furnace, focus on the amount of money you’ll be able to save in the future. Even if your current furnace is still working, we recommend that you begin to look into a more efficient model so that you can get a head start for when you do need to upgrade, and this is especially true if your current furnace is starting to fail. When it comes to low cost and frustration, think high efficiency.
