For those of you with older furnaces, it’s the sound you dread all winter. The thermostat clicks, your furnace turns on, and you can feel your bank account getting lighter by the second as your old furnace gobbles up cubic foot after cubic foot of natural gas.
You’d be surprised to learn how many old furnaces are still working in the Kansas City metro. And although you’ve got to give those old machines credit for still kicking, don’t overlook the fact that many of those older models are only around 75% efficient – some even less. That means the owners of those furnaces are spending about 25% more than they could be. And with Kansas City’s cold winter months, that adds up fast.
First, You Need To Get Smart
You’d be surprised at how little the average American knows about a furnace. Think about it. How often do you purchase a furnace? Besides that, most people don’t want risk ruining their furnace or putting their family’s safety in jeopardy by trying to be a DIY furnace repairman. But, when it comes time to replace your unit you’ve got to get up to speed and fast.
AFUE – The Four Letter Acronym That Really Means MONEY
If you’ve done any shopping around for a furnace you’ll probably hear these four letters, “AFUE” which stands for “Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency.” It’s a measure of a furnace’s efficiency and performance. The higher the AFUE rating, the lower your fuel costs. Most modern furnace ratings range from 80% to 95%. That means between 20% to 5% (depending on your model) of the natural gas your furnace is using still gets wasted.
Single Stage Vs. Variable-Speed – Get Maximum Control
A single stage furnace is either on at full blast, or off. It’s comparable to your one speed self propelled lawn mower that has no in between speeds. For a furnace that means it’s loud when it suddenly turns on to maximum speed and you need to be happy with all or nothing at all times. Not the best option. A variable speed furnace quietly ramps up to speed, so there are no loud blasts of air at start-up or any other point of operation. After it’s running it can automatically make adjustments as necessary to allow maximum fuel efficiency.
