Is it Time for a New Furnace?
Even if your old furnace is still working after 15 or more years, you may want to consider upgrading to a new, high-efficiency unit.
The efficiency of a central furnace is measured by its annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). New residential furnaces must clearly display the AFUE so that you can easily compare different models. A furnace with an AFUE of 95 percent means that 95 percent of the fuel’s energy is converted to heat for your home. Older furnaces had AFUEs in the range of 55 percent to 70 percent. New units have AFUEs up to 98.5 percent.
The U.S. Department of Energy says if your heating unit is more than 15 years old, it may save you money in the long run to replace it with a new model.
Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Furnace
Older furnaces typically require more frequent and more expensive repairs. If repairs bills are adding up, your old furnace may be costing your more than you would pay for a new unit.
If you are experiencing humidity problems in your home, it could be due to your furnace not operating properly. High humidity can make your home uncomfortable and create an ideal environment for mold growth. Low humidity can create dry air that dries out your skin and furniture surfaces in your home like leather and wood. If you suspect your furnace may be to blame for your home’s humidity problems, one of our highly-trained and experienced technicians can help you determine the best solution.
Don’t Let Repairs Turn Into Replacements
Unusual noises and vibrations from your furnace are indications that components are becoming worn and repairs will be needed soon. You should have the cause of these issues identified and addressed as soon as possible to avoid being without heat when needed. A furnace on its last legs is more likely to give out when the temperature drops to an extreme low and it is required to work more.
Make sure you keep your furnace properly maintained each year so that what should be a simple repair doesn’t turn into an entire replacement!
