Find the Perfect Furnace with Bauer Mechanical Services HVAC
A top priority for many Front Range families this time of year is staying warm, comfortable, and healthy through the holidays and into the new year. But, another hidden factor in keeping your home comfortable is the factor of spending extra cash on heating and electric bills through the winter months. If you’re in the market for a new furnace unit, let our guide from Bauer Mechanical HVAC point you in the right direction toward the most energy-efficient models on the market that are not only high-performance, but also built to save you cash.
Technology is keeping up with demand, in that energy efficient furnace units and HVAC systems are no longer hard to come by or difficult to afford. Homeowners can now factor in their desire to be efficient and friendly to the environment with the need to save money in the months when many American families struggle to make ends meet. Plus, modern systems are regulated by federal and local standards (mandated and voted on by your elected officials) that demand a base level of efficiency. For example the Federal Trade Commission requires a base AFUE level (that stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) for new models and are often obvious signs as to whether a unit will perform efficiently for a long time or not.
When you’re shopping for a furnace unit, keep an eye out for the following features:
First, contact an HVAC expert like the ones that make up our team at Bauer Mechanical Services HVAC to make sure your home’s insulation is properly installed and maintained. If you invest in more energy efficient HVAC units and have problems with insulation, that efficiency could immediately could go out the window (literally). This is especially important when it comes to older or historic homes such as those in downtown or rural areas. Talk to your local HVAC technicians about energy efficient units in homes like this, as many must be retrofitted to accommodate an updated unit model.
Then, look into units with timing systems and weight the pros and cons of this feature. This can also be achieved through programmable thermostats, which are a part of all of Bauer Mechanical’s originally-installed HVAC systems. You can set user preferences to dictate the cycles and temperatures you unit will work to achieve based on the time of day, and this can be programmed to mirror your day to day life and routine. (Hint: it also saves you money)
