Time to upgrade your furnace – As of May 1, 2013 all new non-weatherized furnace installations in the Northern United States will be required to have at least a 90% annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. I’m sure your wondering what exactly that means for you, the homeowner. Well simply put, new replacement furnaces in New York City, New Jersey, and surrounding areas will be required to be more efficient. Installations will be costly but the silver lining is that they are an investment that will end up saving you money in the long run! Luxaire has some great furnace options to choose from through their NexGen series.
