What is a High Efficiency Furnace, and How Does it Work?

High Efficiency Furnace

While a high efficiency furnace install costs 30-40% more than a standard efficiency furnace, you will save significant money in utility bills and find your home more comfortable. The lifespan of a high efficiency furnace is around 15-30 years when annual maintenance is kept.

A traditional furnace draws in cold air, heats it, and blows the warm air through the ductwork in the home. A high efficiency furnace adds a second heat exchanger that pulls in more energy from the exhaust gasses before venting them outside.

A high efficiency furnace has numerous advantages, but whether it is the best investment for you will depend on your goals. If you want lower energy costs, a smaller carbon footprint, and a longer lifespan, the additional up-front expense is worthwhile.

This is particularly true if you intend to stay in your existing house for a considerable amount of time and your furnace has to be replaced. The continuous cost savings, durability, and decreased heating bills will benefit your pocketbook over the high efficiency furnace’s lifespan, and you can feel good about lowering your carbon impact.
