An energy-efficient furnace is a must for Gurnee, IL, residents who want to save money. Your furnace is up against freezing temperatures day after day, and if it’s an older model, all that work can translate into staggering heating costs.
We can Install a High-efficiency Carrier Furnace
Upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace can cut your energy bills in half. Annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) is a measure of furnace efficiency. The higher the AFUE, the less it costs to heat your home. A furnace with an AFUE of 95 converts 95 percent of the fuel it uses into energy. According to Energy.gov, older furnaces have AFUEs between 56 and 70. Carrier’s Infinity 98 gas furnace with Greenspeed Intelligence has an AFUE of 98.5.
We can Seal Leaks to Prevent Heat Loss
Herchenbach Mechanical will prepare your home for furnace sizing by sealing leaks around doors, windows, pipes and in your duct work. Leaks can decrease furnace efficiency by up to 35 percent. The fewer the leaks, the smaller the furnace you’ll need.
We can Perform a Free Furnace Installation Assessment
There is no one-size-fits-all furnace. We will carefully assess your living space and help you choose a high-efficiency unit that’s a good match for your home and your budget.
We can Make Sure Your Furnace is Right-sized

We’ll consider the size and construction of your living space, the cold weather, and the efficiency of the furnace you choose. In most cases, you can install a smaller furnace if it has a high AFUE.
