What Is Furnace Efficiency?
If you’ve been shopping around you’ve seen the term “efficiency” tossed out every which way. But what does it mean? It’s actually an easy thing to answer! In essence the efficiency of the system is a measurement of how much heating the system can generate when compared to how much fuel/resource it uses up. In a gas furnace the efficiency is typically measured by an AFUE rating, a percent rating that tells you how efficiently the gas furnace uses its fuel. Typical ratings can include as low as 78% or as high as 98% at the top end.
Choosing your ideal system is partially about matching the efficiency of the new unit with your home needs and budget, which is why working with knowledgeable experts when replacing is such a high priority.
How Do I Know When to Replace My Furnace?
It’s not always the easiest decision, is it? Ideally you want to replace your furnace system when it’s no longer worth it to try to keep the system running, either from a cost standpoint or from a sanity one. Many situations can actually indicate that a replacement will save you money in the long run, including:
- When the furnace is too old. Generally, a furnace, whether it’s gas or electric, is going to run effectively for around 10-15 years—sometimes a bit longer for a gas system. Past that point you’ll notice higher utility costs, more breakdowns, and overall a much weaker performance, all of which can indicate it’s time to replace.
- When your furnace needs repairs all the time. One repair is one thing, but two, three, or more repairs can end up costing an unnecessary arm and leg. When you’re encountering a situation where you have to call in for repair every year or more, replacing is the more effective option.
- When your current repair needs cost too much. Replacing major components in a system like the heat exchanger can end up costing hundreds if not thousands. In these situations, replacing with an updated unit makes sense, as the long-term benefits outweigh the cost of installation.
- If your furnace routinely underperforms. If a system simply fails to do its job, or routinely keeps your home barely above freezing, then you’re throwing money out the window for no gain. Update to a new furnace that’s expertly sized for your needs so you can feel the difference, both in your bank account and in your home.
