Reasons You May Choose to Purchase a new Furnace

Replacing FurnaceA new furnace is an investment into your home and family. A lot of thought goes into a purchase like this and it is not always considered an emergency. A lot of people wait until their current furnace no longer works before looking at getting a new one. But there are so many other incentives to purchase a new furnace for your home.

Here are a few reasons you may wish to replace your existing furnace:

  • Old furnace repairs- as a furnace gets older, expensive repairs can sometimes outweigh the cost of a new furnace.
  • Efficiency – Older furnaces run at about 50%-60% even mid-efficiency units only run around 80%, but with today’s technology you can get high efficiency units that get up to 97%
  • Make space – Older units can take up a lot of space in your furnace and hot water tank area. You can now get lots of compact units to replace your existing ones and often add some extra storage space in that basement.
  • Gas, Oil or Electric – Switching from Oil or Electric to Natural Gas will save you money, is safer on the environment and you no longer will have to call someone to refill your old oil tank.
  • Upgrade – When talking about efficiency, you also will want to keep in mind that switching from a single stage to a 2-stage or modulating furnace will lower your gas consumption. Switching from a belt or PSC blower motor to a high efficient ECM motor will save you hundreds a year and deliver a more comfortable in home atmosphere.
  • Warranty – Most of the new furnace warranties are now 10 years conditional unit replacement so if you have issues with your heat exchanger, they will replace your whole furnace.
