Modern-day furnaces are paradigms of fuel efficiency. It’s no wonder why consumers all over the country choose gas-fueled furnaces as their main source of heat during the coldest months of the winter. Approaching 90% efficiency and beyond, gas furnaces can heat your home at the fraction of the cost and energy consumption that they used to.
That being said, tools like professional furnace inspection, insulation, sealing service, and the upgrade of a new thermostat can keep your heat costs low and the effectiveness of your heater high. There doesn’t have to be a sacrifice of your home’s warmth for less energy consumption, often these two goals can be achieved simultaneously. Without proper maintenance, you’ll run a higher risk of needing furnace repair in Egg Harbor Township.
