How Homeowners in Utah are Preparing for Winter, Smartly and Efficiently

Posted On: October 25, 2013

In a recent infographic about air conditioning, we outlined the benefits of a new high efficiency air conditioning system by Lennox to help our loyal customers in Ogden, UT save on energy costs this summer and succeeding ones.

Because we provide both heating and air conditioning services in Utah, we’re going to mention how Utah homeowners can save even more on energy costs by switching to a gas-powered furnace.

Before we move on, let’s take a look at what the current energy situation is in Utah.

According to recent data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, Utah is the largest consumer of utility gas for heat in the United States. 84.8% of all energy for heating comes from utility gas while only 9.8% comes from electricity. This proves that electric heating is incredibly outdated and the time to switch to gas heat is now.

And this is exactly what people in Utah are doing. However, instead of saving money in the short run and buying less expensive heating equipment, they’re being smart and shelling out the extra money for high efficiency equipment.

What’s the reason for this?

Well, some people are concerned about protecting the environment, but the majority of Utah homeowners are concerned with saving money while staying warm during winters.

The Lennox SLP98V, a high efficiency gas furnace, is more expensive than standard heating equipment but offers enormous savings and state-of-the-art technology. This technology comes in the form of the following features.
