My friend recently had his utility gas company over to inspect his 30 year
old furnace and was asking about the 80+ and 90+ AFUE furnaces as a
replacement. The inspector told him he has seen nothing but problems with
these new furnaces - Keep your old one and upgrade the insulation etc.
Anyone have experiences to confirm this?
And it is this utility company that is constantly offering me thousands in
rebates to upgrade
to the 90+AFUE furnace, CFL bulbs, fridge buybacks etc. No, I think the
inspector was offering his honest opinion. FYI, the utility makes the same
amount of money no matter how much fuel it sells. The formula per unit of
fuel is Cost of service / anticipated volume
Had my heating/AC guy come in and service my Lennox Gas Pulse furnace and
did a check on the efficiency with his new tester. My extinct furnace came
in at 97.6% after stabilizing. All the 90+ came in at about 88%. If you
look around you might get lucky and find one sitting in some heating

You DO know what track record the Pulse has?
Also...in the right hands, (or wrong..as the case may be) a tester can read
99% efficent....just so you know...
IF your unit is reading that high (its not really) then I know someone at
Lennox that wants to see it..
