Advantages of Furnace Replacement
You may be compelled to keep your outdated furnace for as long as you can. But even the top HVAC expert can only do so much through furnace maintenance and repairs. The last thing you want to deal with is a broken furnace in the middle of winter season.
As a result of advances in technology, there are lots of advantages from choosing furnace replacement instead. Here are just a few of them:
- Better energy efficiency. Most modern furnaces offer a greatly superior efficiency rating in contrast with older models. You’ll have to identify the annual furnace utilization efficiency rating, or AFUE. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient the furnace is at converting energy into heat. A higher AFUE furnace can even help lower your heating bills without compromising comfort. The most efficient furnaces are ENERGY STAR certified, which means they meet or excel rigorous federal criteria for energy efficiency.
- Silent, consistent performance. An ear-splitting, clattering furnace is a problem of the past. We deliver furnaces that contain variable-speed blowers, a attribute that changes how much heat your furnace produces and distributes. Variable speed can help you use a lesser amount of energy while increasing your house’s comfort level.
- Greater direct control. With the option to join a smart thermostat with your upgraded furnace, you’ll have more features and settings that create home comfort fast and simple. Environmentally friendly programming, to illustate, could help you balance comfort with lower energy waste.

Do I Need to Repair or Replace My Furnace?
You don’t have to be an HVAC technician to know when buying an upgraded furnace is better than fixing your old one. There are several clues to look out for and noticing any of them quickly could spare you from serious malfunctions. It will also make the switch into a new furnace much easier. Be on the lookout for all of the following:
- Your furnace’s age. Even with proper maintenance, most home furnace systems don’t live more than 20 years. So just in case, it’s a good idea to think about replacing your furnace once it exceeds the 15-year mark.
- The frequency and cost of repairs. With good care, you shouldn’t require furnace repair regularly. As your furnace ages, you may see you’re scheduling repair calls more often. We recommend updating your furnace when repairs are greater than half the price of a new system.
- You’re getting a new air conditioner. If you’re upgrading your AC system, installing a new furnace can maximize its efficiency.
