Reasons to Buy a New Furnace
As you are evaluating your home’s current heating system, here a few questions to ask yourself: Is my system doing the job efficiently? Is it working too hard? Is it undersized or oversized? When was it last serviced? Do I need a new system? All good questions and this is the right time of year to seek some solid answers.
- Age of your system: If your furnace, boiler, or heat pump is between 10 and 20 years old, it may be time for an evaluation. This is the prime age range for serious malfunctions to surface, including gas leaks.
- Frequent repairs: If your heating and cooling tech specialist are on speed dial, it may be time to throw out the old and bring in the new.
- System performance: Are you wearing out the floor running back and forth adjusting your thermostat? Does your furnace rumble when you crank it up? Is the air damp or stuffy? All of these signs could mean it’s time for a furnace replacement. At the very least, an evaluation.
Types of Furnaces: Which One is Right for You?
Furnaces fall into two broad categories and operate very differently from one another:
- Conventional furnaces exhaust (push out) combustion gases quickly so the gases exit the chimney flue before cooling and condensing. As a result, the furnace heat exchanger does not collect as much heat from the fuel combustion process as possible and therefore is not as efficient.
- Condensing furnaces have a secondary heat exchange which boosts its efficiency to an AFUE rating of 90 – 98 percent. This level of efficiency means that less fuel is needed to run the system, again, saving money. It also means that the furnace will spend less time operating, extending the life of your furnace.
- Single-stage heating and cooling systems are popular in colder winter climates and hot and humid parts of the country, respectfully, because the systems are set to provide comfort for the extreme coldest or warmest days of the year. Of course, this also means that these heating systems are running unnecessarily at full capacity throughout much of the year, while also running up your utility bills. If you are committed to a single-stage, you may want to consider one with a variable fan speed, which creates variable air flow so the system is not running at full capacity 365 days a years.
- Zoned HVAC systems are designed to heat and cool individual areas of your home (zones) by controlling zone valves or zone dampers inside the vents or duct work, selectively blocking the flow of air from designated parts of the house. For obvious reasons, these systems can save you money on operating costs.
