Homeowners expect to be comfortable during winter and summer without paying excessive energy bill. During heating season, electric bill goes high and level of comfort during summer decreases because using an old system of let say 10 years old does not work properly and cost of annual maintenance for repair increases. Installing a new HVAC system cost a little expensive but money wise it is more economical than forever using the old system that works harder to keep you warm or cool. Thus, replacing your old heating and cooling equipment with energy-saving model, you can cut your annual energy bill.
It is a great start to replace your old system but make sure that you get it properly installed because if it is not properly installed their efficiency can be reduced and costing you more on your bill.
Gas furnace is the most widely use on household heating. Since it burns cleanly, it does not require an annual servicing to remove accumulated sulfur and soot. Another consideration to take is according to the market analyst the price of oil will remain expensive than the gas furnace price of fuel in the future. No storage is required on natural gas.
A newly installed furnace price is from $3-$5 thousand dollars with an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of even up to 95% efficiency measurements. AFUE on natural gas furnaces that is able to reach higher than the required rating of 78 percent on AFUE rating means more money you can save over the life of the gas furnace.
