M. Price of Surrey, BC, didn’t like the noise coming from the old gas furnace in her 1989 Vancouver-area mobile home.
But when Price’s furnace contractor discovered the home’s noisy furnace was leaking unhealthy levels of carbon monoxide into the house, Price knew it was time to improve her home’s comfort and safety with a new high-efficiency gas furnace.
Home energy audit
To qualify for government renovation grants and rebates, Price had a BC Home Energy Advisor come to her home. She knew she needed an energy audit that would point to the ways she could improve her home’s energy use, and to help her decide on the most energy-efficient furnace.
The energy audit experience was “very good,” says Price. “They were just such nice men, very polite.”
The energy advisors gave Price a list of ways she could make her home more energy-efficient, and explained the process she’d need to follow to get government grants and rebates for her new furnace. “They explained it so I would understand,” she says. “They definitely know their jobs.”
High-efficiency gas furnace
Following her home energy assessment, Price ordered a replacement furnace for her Vancouver-area home. She chose a new high-efficiency gas furnace with a 92% annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) and a variable-speed DC motor, a type of furnace that would not only help improve her home’s energy efficiency, but would save her money by using less fuel overall.
The result was a combination of energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction, plus government grants and rebates to help offset the cost of the new furnace.
“I was thinking about getting a new washer and dryer, but when the furnace goes, that gets done first,” says Price. “As far as heat is concerned, what a difference! It’s a nice, even heat.”
