A new high-efficiency
heating system can cut your fuel bills significantly
—Although older forced-air and hot water
boiler systems had efficiencies in the range of 56% to 70%, modern
heating systems can achieve efficiencies as high as 97%, converting
nearly all the fuel to useful heat for the home.
Upgrading your furnace or boiler from 56% to 90%
efficiency in an average cold-climate house will save 1.5 tons of
carbon dioxide emissions each year if you heat with gas, or 2.5
tons if you heat with oil.
Is your furnace old, worn
out, inefficient, or significantly oversized? —
The simplest solution is to replace it with a modern high-efficiency
model. Pack-Timco can run a heat-loss calculation to size your new
furnace. Energy-efficiency improvements will save money on the furnace,
because your home will need a smaller furnace. A properly sized
furnace will also operate most efficiently.
Living in New England, it makes sense to invest in
the highest-efficiency system available. When shopping for high-efficiency
furnaces and boilers, look for dependability, and look for the ENERGY
