High efficiency gas furnaces have up to a 97% efficiency rating. Efficiency of 97% means that 97% of the fuel used in the furnace goes to heat your home. Mid efficiency gas furnaces have a rating of 78% to 82%. They cost about $1000 less than a high efficiency furnace. This cost difference will be paid off in just a few years at the present price level of natural gas which can be expected to rise in future years.
It is a decision as to whether to spend less money now for the furnace you need, and spend more for fuel during the life of the appliance. The logical decision is to spend a bit more money now and then less for your regular gas bills by purchasing a high efficiency natural gas furnace.
The supply of natural gas is limited and most of the available shallow gas reserves have already been found, and are presently in production. Deeper wells must be drilled at a higher cost to find deep gas supplies. The higher drilling and production costs will result in higher gas prices as we use more gas every year. For this reason a high efficiency furnace will pay with big savings in the future.
The best choice now is a high efficiency natural gas furnace. Government grants and tax rebates are often available to reduce the cost by up to 50% in some cases. The decision to install a high efficiency furnace should be based on when the best rebate can be obtained. Most companies which sell and install furnaces can quote you the current gas furnace prices and also can tell you what government rebates are available.
