All winter long you’re grateful for your heating system because it keeps you and your home warm when New Jersey’s temperatures drop.
But while you’re still thinking about your delicious Thanksgiving feast, let’s talk turkey: If you’re operating an inefficient, aged or malfunctioning heating system, then you’re overpaying for your coziness with high energy bills and fuel costs.
How do you know your system needs a replacement? Look for these signs:
When it’s time for a replacement, turn to a professional. It’s recommended that you hire industrial electrical services to check on your electrical systems. Not only will we guide you toward choosing the right system for your home, we’ll also ensure you get the most out of your investment with our high-efficiency systems.
Here’s why you’ll be thankful you upgraded to a high-efficiency air source heat pump, furnace or boiler:
Ideally, you want to operate a heating system that delivers the maximum level of heat while consuming the minimum amount of energy. This is where it helps to take a look at your unit’s annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. An AFUE ratio is the percent of heat a system produces for every dollar of fuel it consumes. For example, a furnace with an AFUE of 80 will turn 80 percent of its fuel into useable heat, while the other 20 percent of its fuel is wasted.
The higher a unit’s AFUE rating, the less fuel it wastes and the lower your fuel costs. Any system with an AFUE rating of 90 percent or higher is considered a high-efficiency system. Choosing to upgrade your less-efficient unit to a higher efficiency one can save you hundreds of dollars per year on utility bills.
The savings don’t stop there. Higher efficiency units use one-third less fuel than older units, which means less fuel is wasted and more natural resources are conserved.
