Make sure your family has a safe and comfortable home to stay in all winter. If you have a propane- or natural gas-fired heating system that is over 15 years old, chances are that you are due for an HVAC upgrade. With technology ever-increasing the efficiency of gas-fired equipment, your family can stay warmer without fear of breakdown; all while enjoying consistent, efficient heat year-round.
Upgrading your heating oil equipment can increase your HVAC system’s efficiency by at least 28%. Heating equipment efficiency is measured in AFUEs, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. With the advancement of technology and an ever-increasing need to cut back greenhouse gases, natural gas and propane equipment are now rating AFUEs of 96%! This means that a new high-efficiency heating system will save you a noticeable amount of money each season.
