Replacing Your Current Furnace

Time to switch out your aging furnace? If your system is at the end of its service life or seems to require heating repair after repair, it's best to invest in a newer model. Whether you go with the same model or upgrade to a high-efficiency system, you can reduce your energy use and save on your utility bills each month.

If greater energy efficiency is your top goal, be sure to switch to a furnace with a higher AFUE rating. This indicates the furnace uses more fuel to convert into energy.

How Much Money Can a New Furnace Save You?

Furnace efficiency is measured through a percentile known as average fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). If a furnace has an AFUE rating of 80, that means 80 percent of heat is transferred throughout your house while 20 percent escapes.

Our AFUE energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Just enter your current unit's AFUE value and compare it to a newer, more efficient Bryant system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.
