Researching new oil furnace options

Since our new oil furnace is over twenty years old and always requiring minor repairs, I am eager to replace it, but despite the rather high cost of purchase and upgrade, I think that a modern oil furnace would save quite a bit on our utility bills and service costs

I have been researching the several brands and models of oil gas furnaces on the new market, but from what I’ve been able to find out, the top manufacturers all give a similar version. The best oil gas furnaces are Energy Star qualified and achieve up to 98% AFUE ratings. They include an adjustable speed compressor that allows the unit to make tiny, 1 percent adjustments in capacity, anywhere between 40 and 100%. The system automatically caters output to match the needs of the indoor environment. There is rarely a time when a oil furnace needs to blast at maximum capacity. The oil furnace is able to run at lower speeds for longer cycles. The luck is that there are less temperature changes, less concerns with overly dry air and lower energy USge. These state-of-the-art oil gas furnaces further accommodate zoned control and WIFI attachivity. From a series of control units installed in each room, I’d be able to tailor the temperature setting. I could keep the living rooms cooler during the day or target a higher temperature in the living room without affecting the rest of the house, then zoned control would further help to trim operational costs. With smart control units, I could manage the whole system through an app on our smartphone. A modern oil furnace would also include a manufacturer’s warranty. Since our new oil furnace is over twenty years old and always requiring minor repairs, I am eager to replace it, but despite the rather high cost of purchase and upgrade, I think that a modern oil furnace would save quite a bit on our utility bills and service costs. It would gradually pay for itself, and we’d get to love superior comfort and air quality.
