The price of a furnace generally rises in step with its fuel efficiency. A furnace with a 90 percent AFUE might cost $1,000 more than a similar size unit with an 80 percent AFUE. But you can often recoup that additional cost through lower fuel bills over the life of the furnace, especially in regions such as the Northeast and Midwest, where winters can be harsh. How quickly you recover the investment depends on more than just AFUE. The electricity to run furnaces with different AFUEs can vary significantly. The climate where you live, how well your home is insulated, and your local gas and electricity rates also affect payback times.
Hi This is my 1st summer owning this house. My electric bill has been doubling for 3 months in a row..I have a Carrier 25HPA6 Performance Series 2 Stage Heat Pump...I recently went online and found instructions on how to clean the outdoor unit. I did so and it was not very dirty. I also have a generator that kicks on when I lose power which does not support the AC unit..We did lose power for a few days recently. I have 2 faults showing on the heat pump unit..one being 53 outdoor air sensor not reading or out of range 255 events and F 37 control fault, heater stuck on 13 events.It is set to cool and the fan to auto. I have never had a heat pump or central Air and am very green to this.The previous owners left no manuals.I have found one online but for installation only. PLease help?

I'd had them come out before and called because my thermostat wasn't getting power. They said they don't service townhomes. I said that must be a new policy because they've been out before and she said they've had it for awhile. I tried to ask why they don't service townhomes and she said they don't service attached homes or commercial properties. I said that my home isn't commercial and it doesn't really answer my question, but I guess I'll go elsewhere. I couldn't find this policy on their website and I can't really understand why a townhome furnace would be different than an unattached home. When they came out before I seem to remember they did a good job, so it's too bad they have odd policies now.
