Fuel Your Home’s Warmth With a Gas Furnace
A gas furnace is a powerful heating unit that makes total home comfort possible. In addition to keeping your home warm, it circulates your home’s air to keep it fresh, with this air being easier to heat than stale air. Essentially, this highly efficient unit boosts its own efficiency.
A furnace’s efficiency is measured using an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating—or AFUE rating in the HVAC industry. This percentage is calculated by determining how much fuel is converted into heat vs. wasted. AFUE ratings for gas furnaces have significantly increased over the years. A decade ago, gas furnaces operated at 65 percent efficiency. Today’s units operate at 95 to 96 percent efficiency, which means less than 5 percent of fuel goes to waste. This high AFUE rating leads to significantly lower energy bills.

Opt for the Most Efficient Unit on the Market
We encourage our customers to choose a sealed-combustion gas furnace over an atmospheric one. Besides keeping you comfortable at a reasonable cost, sealed-combustion furnaces are not vulnerable to hazardous backdrafts, which have the potential to put dangerous combustion gases, such as carbon monoxide, into your living space.
With these units, the chamber is sealed — hence the name — giving you greater control over the combustion process. It also has an air intake pipe that uses outdoor air to perform combustion, leading to 95 percent or more efficiency. This high efficiency isn’t just beneficial for your budget; it’s also better for the environment.
Why Should You Consider a High-Efficiency Furnace?
Of course, the most apparent benefit of high-efficiency units is the improved efficiency. The more efficiently your furnace operates, the less energy it requires to keep your home warm. This, in turn, saves you money on your utility bills and has a significantly less negative impact on the environment.
While we don’t typically heat our homes as much as we cool them, 95 percent AFUE sealed-combustion furnaces are much more efficient than traditional furnaces at 80 percent AFUE.
The benefits of sealed combustion also extend past energy savings. Most newer homes are more airtight to improve energy efficiency. Meanwhile, you may have made improvements to your older home, such as encapsulating crawl spaces or adding spray foam insulation, to enhance energy efficiency. These are significant improvements and make a home much more comfortable. However, this affects the combustion air that’s required for a furnace to operate correctly and safely. This is where sealed-combustion furnaces are so wonderful. They draw combustion air from outside of the home, eliminating the risk of carbon monoxide entering your living space.
High-efficiency gas furnaces cost 25 percent to 40 percent more. However, they are worth the investment due to the significant savings you’ll see over time.
At Bolton, we’re committed to making the comfort you desire — and deserve— more affordable. Learn how our financing options can make the initial cost of upgrading to a high-efficiency unit easier on your budget.
