New Furnaces from General Heating use up to 40% less natural gas than older models

Natural gas prices have more than tripled in the past 10 years and many analysts are forecasting further price increases. Fortunately, the efficiency ratings of new furnaces have also been increasing. In 1995, the government raised the minimum required efficiency of new furnaces to 78%. Most furnaces installed before this time were only 60-70% efficient, and very old furnaces can be less than 50% efficient. A continuously burning pilot light can decrease these efficiencies by another 5%. New furnaces are 80% to 95% efficient.

They do not have pilot lights and can reduce your heating costs by up to 40%.

These amounts were formerly posted on BC Hydro's web site, and are based on energy consumption for space heating in the average BC home. Some homes have much higher heating costs.

Since space heating accounts for about 60% of the average home’s energy cost (according to Natural Resources Canada’s Heating with Gas) these savings can be substantial, and a new furnace can pay for itself in as few as five years.
