    On I Higher Note My Matched XR17 & 100% Varble Speed Furnace - Saved Me Big

    Here are some Numbers I have need checking Watts Used Daily , Gas Units Used Weekly during Heating Season .
    Watts Used during the A/C Only Summer Months ..

    New Home for Us First Yr.

    OK a few Comparisons : Year 1 : 2 Hot water Tanks 40 Gallon Tanks - 1 was Finally Turned Off and the Other
    Turns Down as the Electric Bill was Crazy in Winter _ Bother were set @ 130 degree . at First .
    Later 1 Off / Other Down to 118 Degrees . this bought only average Watts saving . .

    Added Better Lighting outside a lot more Eff% and Quiet = good saving of Watts .
    Added Better more Eff% Ref. & Washer / Drier = good saving on Watts

    OK the Above Saved 10000 Watts on average a day . 10Kwatts around 300 KW a Month .

    Took Out Gas Fireplace Added Wood Burning Insert - saved 155 Cu Meters & Got Much Better Heat .

    Second Yr. in New Home _ Added Insulation 10-11 inch on Top of Old R19 , so Now have R48

    Installed a New Hybrid Hot Water Tank 50 Gallons : Replaced 2 - 40 Gallon Electrics .. Big Watts another 10000 Watts Saved Daily .

    Installed Match _ Train A/C XR17 Straight _ No Reverse Refrig. which is Simple and Lower Cost .
    Installed Match High 94% 100 % Variable Gas _ Took Out 100% Electric and Heat Strips = Huge Saving on Watts
    Heat is Far Superior . 15000 - 20000 Watts Per Day . Gas went up average of 55 Cu Ft a Month .

    Saving Per Month on the Summer Bills $20.00 - $25.00 a Month / Winter Months = $90 to $150.00 Less Min.

    It Pays to Up Grade _ Tax - Right Offs also !

    The statement below is my signature and just my overall feeling towards our industry and does not necessarily pertain to you nor this thread.


    There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!

    Those Numbers are very Conservative , as the We were only running the A/C on Older Unit
    about 6-8 Hours a day Max and the New System runs 12-16 Hours ..
    Electric Bill in Winter _ could $325.00 and My Highest Last Yr. during the Record breaking Cold Wave
    Broke Records back over 100 yrs. was $157.00 for Electric & Gas .

    $168. in 1 month , so Pay Back will be pretty Quick ..

    I Projected the 50 Gallon Hybrid Tank would be Paid in Full 3.5 Yrs. .
    All the Other Equipment and Electrical Up Grades to Home - Which Most Folks wouldn't Do
    Gas Line Up Grade - which Most folks Need Not do is still only 8 Yrs.
