Pros and Cons of a Condensing Furnace

October 23, 2018 | Blog

Pros and Cons of a Condensing FurnaceToday’s furnaces have come a long way from the furnaces of yesteryear, providing remarkable improvements in overall comfort and energy efficiency. If you’re in the market for a new furnace, a condensing furnace offers one of the most efficient home comfort solutions you can buy.


Here are a few advantages to buying one of these high-efficiency furnaces:

Reduced energy consumption – With the ability to convert up to 97 percent of its fuel into heat, condensing furnaces are more energy efficient than their traditional counterparts. The end result is reduced energy consumption and lower annual heating costs.

Better heat distribution – With the help of variable-speed blower motors, condensing furnaces deliver heat throughout your home more evenly. This eliminates the development of cold spots throughout your home.

Better rebates and tax credits – High-efficiency furnaces qualify for utility company rebates and federal tax credits, putting more money back in your pocket.

Consider This

Although there are plenty of upsides to having a condensing furnace, there are a few downsides to consider:

More expensive than traditional furnaces – Upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace of this type comes with a higher upfront cost. On average, condensing furnaces cost double of what a traditional gas furnace costs.

Requires different venting solutions – Due to lower exhaust temperatures, condensing furnaces use PVC pipes instead of traditional metal flue exhausts.

Requires professional maintenance – High-efficiency furnaces of this type have more demanding maintenance needs. Your trusted HVAC technicians have the tools and expertise to take care of your furnace.

If you think a condensing furnace is right for your Coastal Bend home, talk to the experts at CCAC. We’ll take care of the installation process and provide fast, efficient service whenever you need it.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
