Your Furnace Should Be Efficient, Reliable And Provide Comfort; How’s It Doing?

You rely on your home’s HVAC system to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. As your home and the system ages you will likely wonder if it is time to upgrade. This is a big investment and a major decision that should come after careful consideration. You want to ensure that a replacement is necessary and will help boost the efficiency, reliability, and comfort provided by your HVAC system.

When considering whether it is time to replace a furnace think about the unit’s:

  • Efficiency Energy Star, an agency of the U.S. government, recommends replacing a furnace that is more than 15 years old. This is due primarily to the availability of more efficient units on the market today. Many different models run at 95 percent efficiency or better. A switch to a more efficient model will reduce your energy consumption and lower your energy bills.
  • Reliability A properly maintained furnace should provide reliable heating to your entire home year round. Scheduling regular preventive maintenance visits, replacing or repairing faulty components, and routinely changing the filter are all important. If you continue to have problems with your unit, even after ongoing maintenance is complete, you will likely want to investigate the possibility of a replacement.
  • Comfort A properly sized, well maintained furnace should provide a comfortable climate to your entire home. The HVAC system works together to provide warm air to all regions of the home and to regulate interior temperatures. The furnace is at the core of this sophisticated system. If yours is unable to provide the amount of heat necessary to keep your home at a constant temperature you are likely in need of a new unit.
