There’s a crispness in the air and leaves crunching beneath your feet, so you know what that means—higher utility bills are coming your way. However, if you upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace, you can drastically reduce your bills and enjoy an appliance that’s built to last up to 20 years. Options like the EL296V Lennox furnace featuring Power Saver technology can give you more cash for holiday spending by delivering consistent interior temperatures at affordable prices.
The AFUE rating of furnaces can vary drastically, and unfortunately older furnaces just don’t have what it takes to compete with the latest high-efficiency options. With AFUE ratings in the high 90s, that means an option with 96 percent efficiency sends 96 cents of every dollar directly to heating your home. When you live in the Pacific Northwest, you know how bone-chilling the winters can be. Are you prepared?
The Furnace That Pays for Itself
While some furnaces can last over 20 years, even ones that are “just kids” at eight years old can have outdated technology. If your furnace is only functioning at 60 percent, you’ll instantly save hundreds each year by installing a more efficient model. In a recent industry study, a 96 percent efficient furnace was compared to a 65 percent-rated model and found that homeowners saved an average of $2,447 every year by upgrading. This is truly the furnace that pays for itself.
