I notice a real threat

My partner and I have lived in our beach house for nearly twenty years.  The heating and cooling system was already installed when all of us bought the house, and the device was not up-to-date at the time.  We’ve been fortunate that the gas furnace and a/c have been quite reliable over the years. I’m sure that keeping up with annual professional maintenance and air filter changes has promoted smooth operation.  Unfortunately, the gas furnace now needs to be replaced. Over the last couple of years, I’ve observed a steady increase in the biweekly energy bills. The gas furnace is particularly putting out less air and running for much longer cycles.  On especially freezing nights, it can no longer keep up with demand. While I hate to spend the cash on a up-to-date gas furnace and deal with the whole installation process, I am sad to have the up-to-date furnace up and running. I took the opportunity to research numerous makes and models, and decided to spend a bit more to take advantage of some innovative features.  The gas furnace I chose achieves a 98% AFUE rating, which will significantly reduce running costs. It has the capability of decreasing capacity between 40 and 100% percent, allowing it to operate at lower speeds for longer cycles. This not only optimizes efficiency, however reduces sound levels and temperature swings. The current gas furnace is also protected by advanced safety features, more effectively filters indoor air, and really helps with humidification.  The gas furnace is tied up to be installed at the beginning of next week, and I’m super excited. This year, I’ll really be looking forward to the freezing Wintertide weather.
