Are you still relying on the same furnace you had installed 15 years ago? Tried and true as it may be, that outdated unit is probably wasting hundreds of dollars’ worth of energy every year. Switching to a modern HVAC system can slash heating bills and improve the comfort of your home.


Comparing Efficiency

Old furnace models operate at an efficiency level between 56 and 80 percent. That means as much as $40 of every $100 you spend on heating fuel is lost if you continue to use an outdated unit. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, newer mid-efficiency models offer 80 to 85 percent efficiency, but the best provide between 90 and 98.5 percent thanks to improved technology and compact designs.


Maintenance Costs

Price is a big factor when considering whether to install a new heating system. You may have to invest several thousand dollars to get a high-efficiency model. Compare this with how much you’re spending to maintain your existing furnace. Add up the cost of repairs, parts, emergency visits and wasted fuel, and you may be surprised to find that an updated HVAC installation won’t take long to pay for itself.


Air Quality Issues

Indoor air quality may not be a matter of efficiency, but it has a big impact on the health of your home and those who live there. Aging furnace units, especially those that haven’t received regular maintenance, can put soot, dust, mold and other particles in constant circulation. These particles may cause anything from respiratory problems to serious illnesses that require hospitalization. New HVAC systems include options such as air purifiers, ventilators and humidity control to enhance air quality and keep your family safe.


Get in the Zone

Traditional furnaces heat homes by pumping warm air equally throughout the house. If there’s a room or a whole area of your home that you don’t use regularly, a large amount of that heat could wind up getting lost. Zoned HVAC systems place thermostats in each room or in specially divided “zones,” allowing you to adjust the temperature of each area independently to optimize energy use.
