Benefits of a High-Efficiency Heater
Rising energy bills and concern over the environment are driving more people into reducing their carbon footprint and becoming more energy efficient at home. The U.S. Department of Energy said back in May 2013 that all furnaces must convert at least 80 percent of their fuel into heat. However, many older heaters operate at only 65 percent, which means that they’re wasting 35 percent of the fuel.
Today, most high-efficiency furnaces operate at 90 to 95 percent efficiency, which saves money on your heating bills and aids the environment. Also, high-efficiency furnaces may last longer because most utilize more economical on-off cycling, which puts less stress on the system.
Lastly, new, high-efficiency heaters provide the latest technologies such as sound-absorbing materials and advances in materials to provide more consistent heat throughout the house with practically no noise.
