Furnace Efficiency

Today’s furnaces are far more efficient than units 10 years or older. The improved heating efficiency represents considerable energy savings, which will help to offset the cost of replacement.

Understanding Furnace Efficiency

Furnaces in Canada must meet a minimum energy efficient rating called AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). The minimum AFUE for today’s furnaces is 92% while the best Energy Star furnaces can be as high as 98.7 AFUE.

A furnace with an AFUE rating of 92% indicates that 92% of the fuel is being converted to heat, with the remaining 8% represented as waste.

With rising utility costs a new higher-efficient furnace may be in your best interest. We can sit down with you and give you all the information you need to make the best choice.

Furnace Installation Considerations

A brand new furnace cannot reach its maximum peak efficiency if it is not sized or installed correctly.

Furnace Size

A furnace which is too large or small for a home will have too many on/off cycles or work harder than necessary and be susceptible to more breakdowns over its lifetime. Sizing a furnace for the square footage of a home is one of the most important factors for even temperatures in the home as well as efficiency and extending the lifespan of the unit.

Improper furnace installation is the number one cause for breakdowns and expensive repair bills. Further, if a furnace is not installed correctly it may void the manufactures warranty. Getting another company to repair a poorly installed furnace under warranty can be challenging depending on the issues and circumstances.

Ductwork Design and Installation

Ductwork is vital in distributing and maximizing airflow to the registers throughout a home. Leaky or incorrect duct sizes or placement can not only lower the efficiency of a furnace but it will also cause a poor distribution of warm air to the rooms in our home. Make sure your furnace installer is experienced with ductwork as it is not to be overlooked when looking to maximize peak efficiency.

Furnace Prices

If you are shopping for a replacement furnace price you’ve probably had a difficult time finding anything.

Because every furnace installation can vary substantially it’s difficult to allow for a “blanket” quote for a basic installation price or quote. Furnace installation prices will vary depending on the following:

  • Retrofits for older furnaces will require ductwork and venting as today’s furnaces no longer require a flue for gasses to escape. There is so little wasted heat that furnaces now vent from a smaller plastic pipe directly outside, no longer needing a chimney through the roof of a home. Also, safety features, piping or electrical may need upgrading or replacing. Any additional work will increase the cost of installation.
  • Ductwork needs to be clean, leak-free and properly sized to achieve maximum heating efficiency. We will inspect ductwork and assess any needed changes or upgrades.
  • Size of furnace and its efficiency rating will also affect the price for a new heating system. Higher efficiency furnaces have more features and cost more initially although the energy savings will lower your heating costs over the years.
