Did you know that today’s conventional heating systems can be as much as 98.5% energy efficient? What does that mean for your home? It means big savings and less pollution output. If you have an older heating system, chances are that your current efficiency range is only 56% – 70%. Homeowners who are struggling with poor performance and constant heating repair services should consider the benefits of new furnace installation. Keep reading to learn about all the benefits of replacing or retrofitting your existing heating system.
Is Your Home’s Furnace the Right Size?
Many homes are wasting energy and money because they are operating on a heating system that isn’t the right size for their home. In fact, many older homes have systems that are just too big. A furnace or boiler that is sized correctly will work most efficiently, conserving energy and reducing your heating bills. Before you begin shopping for a new furnace give one of our local HVAC contractors a call to help you determine the right size heating system for your home.
Shopping for a New Furnace
Once you know what size furnace you need, you can start the shopping process. To get the most bang for your buck in terms of energy savings, always look for heaters that have the ENERGY STAR® label. These systems will provide the highest efficiency – 80%-95%. For homeowners living in mild climates, you can invest less upfront and still reap energy savings by purchasing a furnace that is in the 80% range. Homeowners in cold-weather climates may want to consider spending more and purchasing a unit in the 90%-95% range for the best efficiency and overall energy savings.
Should you consider a natural gas furnace? Many homeowners enjoy the benefits of natural gas furnaces but there are some things you should consider before making the switch from an electric furnace. Natural gas furnaces need to have proper ventilation to prevent the buildup of combustible gases. If you do not have a way to vent the furnace, you will want to consider a sealed combustion furnace. This eliminates the dangers of combustible gas.
No matter what type of furnace you’re considering – electric, gas, boiler or steam systems – our licensed, bonded, and insured technicians are willing to help you make a purchase that makes the most sense for your budget and your home.
