The Most Efficient Furnace Revealed, Chillicothe, Ohio

The winter cold is starting to settle in, which means it’s time to start thinking about the efficiency of your home’s heating unit. Whether you’re concerned about being more energy efficient and saving on your utility bill this season or you just want to keep your home’s temperature at a more comfortable, stable level, the experienced professionals at Lenox Heating & Cooling in Chillicothe, OH, can help. 

furnaceIf it’s energy efficiency you’re looking for, heating and cooling experts agree that a gas furnace is usually the way to go. However, other factors may play into the equation, and what is best for your specific home in a given location may be different than what is best for someone else’s. For example, if you live in an area that gets a lot of sunlight, taking advantage of active solar heating would be much more efficient than burning wood or gas.

A gas furnace may also not be the best route for you if you’re looking to heat only one specific room. In this case, a portable heater or a space heater may be the solution. Instead of wasting large amounts of energy heating the entire home, it’s only a very controlled area you need to keep comfortable.

If it’s is a gas furnace you’re looking for, Lenox Heating & Cooling recommends checking out one of the following, which have the highest ratings for efficiency:

  • Coleman Echelon: This furnace comes at a hefty price, but can be up to 98% efficient, as measured by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), and can cut your fuel costs by up to 38%.
  • York LX: If you still want high efficiency but at a lower installation price, consider the York LX series. With comparable efficiency (the AFUE measures it at 96%), this gas furnace will also take up less space.
