The benefits of a 95% (AFUE) furnace are the gas savings, incentive rebates by your local gas provider, lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger and resale value.
An 80% (AFUE) efficient furnace will also provide gas savings from your old furnace, cost less than a 95% furnace, smaller rebates by your local gas provider and most offer a 20-year warranty for the heat exchanger. All furnaces have ECM motor as of 2019, this is a more durable motor. A heat exchanger is the main hub of a furnace, providing the heat, a furnace is built around the heat exchanger. The operation of each unit is different, an 80% furnace uses in air from the surrounding area (open combustion) and a 95% furnace uses in air from the outdoors though PVC pipes (sealed combustion).
Your current furnace location and venting options will help determine which efficiency you need. The cost difference between an 80% and 95% can be as low at $700.00 depending on brand of furnace.
Another major consideration when making your furnace choice is if you will be living in your home 5 or more years. It is worth the investment of a high efficient furnace if you will be! Remember high efficient furnaces have a lifetime heat exchanger warranty and will provide energy and gas savings over the life of the furnace.
