Installing an efficient furnace is a good way to reduce the amount of natural gas used to heat your home. Choosing an efficient gas furnace with an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) fan can also reduce the amount of electricity it takes to distribute heated and cooled air around your house. Because most furnaces that utilize an ECM can also run at slower speeds, they can operate more quietly than a standard furnace. With a properly installed 95% gas furnace with ECM, you can reduce your electric bills year-round.
