You probably want an HVAC system that keeps you comfortable, performs well and has low energy costs. Using a high-efficiency heater option in your home has several long-term benefits for you and your family. Here are the most energy-efficient and high-performance HVAC systems.

Gas furnaces
Gas furnaces are rated for efficiency. Today’s models range from a minimum of 78% up to 98.5%. You should avoid using old models, as they can be unsafe or inefficient. If your home already has ducts, replacing your heating system with a new, efficient gas furnace is a relatively straightforward process.

Heat Pump
A heat pump can lower your heating costs considerably and double as a cooling system in the summer. Heat pumps run on electricity and work like air conditioners in reverse, using a compressor to “pull” heat out of the outdoor air. This allows them to produce two to three times as much heat as a standard electric heater (like a space heater) with the same amount of electricity.

Boilers are a kind of heat exchanger, burning gas, propane, wood, or oil to heat (or boil) water. Boilers then transfer this water throughout your home using either pipes or radiator units. Boilers use a combination of a primary fuel source — like gas — and electricity to power the pumps. Due to their efficiency and durability, boilers are some of the most common home heating options.
