How to save money on residential furnaces?
Heating accounts for 61% of your home’s energy use and offers the greatest opportunity for cost savings. Residential furnaces with ENERGY STAR Most Efficient label will save you even more money on your utility bills. Saving energy helps you save money while also lowering your carbon footprint. On average, an ENERGY STAR certified natural gas furnace uses 6% less energy while an ENERGY STAR certified oil furnace uses 9% less energy compared to traditional models.
Rather than cycling on and off repeatedly, high-efficiency blower motors and fans adjust their speed to match your air distribution needs.
Furnaces in Canada can have two labels
- The ENERGY STAR symbol means the model is highly energy efficient.
- The EnerGuide label, which is optional, displays the model’s energy consumption and how it compares to similar models.
ENERGY STAR certified products are subjected to rigorous efficiency testing and certification by an independent third party. They perform as well as, if not better, than standard models without sacrificing performance.
