Furnace Efficiency & HVAC Improvements

Replacing your old, worn out, oversized heater with a high-efficiency furnace can help you save energy and money on your home’s energy bills. Furnace efficiency is an important energy efficiency investment for homeowners.


Selecting the right size energy-efficient furnace is essential to maximizing energy savings and home comfort as well as the maintenance and operation needs associated with the lifespan of your new furnace. Opting for an oversized heater can create large temperature swings in your home. Your contractor or installer can perform the calculation needed to correctly size your energy-efficient furnace in your home.


Regardless of the type of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system operating in your home, you can save energy and money by simply maintaining and upgrading your equipment. If your home is more than 10 years old, your heating and cooling system has likely become less energy efficient. Combine HVAC upkeep and upgrades with programmable-thermostat settings, air sealing, and attic floor insulation to save money and increase comfort.
