When your home has used up the last drop of life your furnace has left in it, you are faced with the task of finding the right unit to replace it. Buying a new furnace is an expensive endeavor and one that can be overwhelming in its own right. It is important that when you are faced with replacing your old furnace with a new one, you know what to look for in your new furnace. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to share our best tips to help you buy the right furnace for your home.
What is the Typical Lifespan of a Furnace? Should I Replace?
Admitting that it may be time for a furnace replacement can be difficult. However, with a life expectancy of about 20 years, you are going to have to face the music at one point or another. Knowing when to admit defeat is the key. First, when you are facing furnace repair that is going to cost you more than 50% of a furnace replacement, you are going to be better off replacing. Also, if you are facing almost constant repairs, it may be time to consider replacement as well. Finally, if you see an enormous hike in your electric bill, your HVAC system may be to blame for the sudden increase.
How Do I Choose a Replacement Furnace
There are some considerations that you are going to want to think about when it comes to replacing your gas furnace. Following are some factors that are important ones to think about.
– Furnace Size: It is vital that the sizing is right when it comes to your furnace. If the unit is too small, it will be too undersized to get your home to a comfortable temperature. If you have a unit that is too large, you will be dealing with short cycling issues.
– Energy Efficiency of Furnace: If you look for a gas furnace that gets a high energy efficient rating, you will find that you can save a significant amount of money on your energy bill each month. Efficiency should be at the top of your list when picking a new furnace.
– Furnace Brand: There are some brands that may be better suited for your home than others. When trying to find the right brand, you can look to your HVAC professional for help. You can also research different brands and look at the reviews and ratings to help you decide which ones are superior to others as well.
