Energy-Efficient Gas Furnaces for Your Wisconsin Home or Commercial Building
When you need a new furnace installed at your southeast Wisconsin home or commercial building, you want to make sure it’s not only going to work, but that it’s also affordable and energy-efficient. In Wisconsin homes, all furnaces are required to have an AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating of 78% or higher, meaning at least 78% of the energy produced by your furnace has to be converted into heat.
Furnaces can vary in efficiency, and they can range from:
- Low Efficiency (78% AFUE rating)
- Standard/Mid Efficiency (80% to 83% AFUE rating)
- High Efficiency (95% to 98% AFUE rating)
Make sure you get the very best gas furnace for your home that’s still within your budget. Call the experts at Hartlaub today to learn more about which furnace is best for you.
Gas vs. Electric– The Best Furnace for Your Wisconsin Home
When deciding on installing a new furnace, many homeowners need to weigh the pros and cons of either getting a gas furnace or an electric furnace. Electric has the benefit of being more environmentally-friendly than gas furnaces since they don’t use natural gas, and they are often times less expensive. Gas furnaces, however, are more powerful than electric ones, and have the ability to transfer heat to other parts of the house. They are also generally better at warming up houses during colder winter months dealing with subzero temperatures.
To live in Wisconsin is to be prepared for any kind of weather, and when it comes to heating your home during the cold winter months, a gas furnace is most likely to be the better choice. Though it is not as eco-friendly as an electric furnace, gas furnaces generate more heat at a faster rate, and can transfer heat throughout the home. Using a gas furnace also helps you save money on the electric bill, which is another bonus!
