Is It Time to Retire that Old, Clunky Furnace?


Or is there some valuable life still left in it?

It can be tough at times to determine whether you should pour more money into an aging heating system or make the investment to replace it. 

Here is a general guideline to help you decide what the right thing is to do:


  • If the furnace unit is less than 10 years old, repairing it is generally the best option.
  • If the furnace unit is more than 15 years old, the repairs tend to be costly and replacement is the better alternative.
  • If the furnace unit is between 10 and 15 years old, it's best to weigh the pros and cons of replacing or repairing the system, based on estimated future costs.

Don't freeze through another cold, dry late fall or winter because your old heating system isn't cutting it anymore.

 

Investing in a higher efficiency furnace can result in significant savings on your monthly electric bills. See High Efficiency Furnace below

Heating Installation


Heating installation is usually a significant investment within your own home and is one job that can make a dramatic change in the overall comfort of your home. At the flip of a switch, no matter what it is like outside, you'll be able to relax indoors at whatever temperature you choose. Not only can it give you the comfort and ease you're looking for in the winter months but it will also add a lot of value to your investment as a home owner.


Central heating installation is often a complex procedure. Research has shown that almost 80% of all heating units in the U.S. are installed incorrectly. This may lead to challenges in the future and the probability of an HVAC unit breakdown on a cold and wet day when it's needed the most. To prevent this from happening, it's essential that your furnace be installed by a properly trained HVAC technician.

Proper central heating installation is vital to the overall function and effectiveness of the unit. An improperly installed central heating system will not perform efficiently and most likely require repair at some point in the future. 


Central heating systems uses air ducts to circulate warm air through the entire home. In houses with existing ductwork, central heating installations can be a reasonably fast job. For houses without existing ductwork or perhaps houses with ducts requiring substantial repair, central heating installation will surely cost more time and money.

Heating Care and General Maintenance


Getting the most out of your heating system year after year is a matter of care and maintenance. When the burners are dirty, or coils or coated in dirt and debris, your system will tend to operate less efficiently, driving up your energy bills.


When the heat exchanger and blower is forced to work harder, this cuts the lifespan of your unit as well.

When you follow simple maintenance steps and procedures every year, you can extend the life of your air conditioner beyond 15 years. 


To do this,


  • Check all the hose connections for leaks. Make sure the condensate tube drains easily.
  • Change/clean the air filter once a month. This is extremely important during summer months when dust and allergens are at their highest rate.
  • Clear the air vents and registers or grills periodically.
  • Having the ducts professionally cleaned every few years can improve performance as well.
  • Keep furniture, drapes and other household items away from registers.

Having your heating system inspected by an experienced professional once a year can ensure that it operates at its peak performance and efficiency levels. It's an investment that pays dividends throughout the year.

Furnaces

  

Furnaces


Choosing the right furnace can be difficult and confusing especially in today’s market where the differences in quality and price are not that big. We believe in Quality and longevity.


Furnaces can be expensive but you must choose the right one, the one that will serve you with ease of service, efficiency and comfort for years to come.


Our team is committed to provide you with the best product knowledge so you can make the right choice easily.


Should you care about your furnace efficiency?


Probably the very first decision is whether to purchase a high-efficiency furnace (90 to 97 % of the actual burnt natural gas is transformed into useful heat), or even a mid-efficiency type, with a 78-82 % rating.  Your high-efficiency furnace's more significant expense will take fewer than six years to recoup, by means of improved energy savings.  (Note: regulations stipulate all brand new furnaces should match the minimal mid-efficiency ranking.)


  High Efficiency Furnace


What is a high-efficiency furnace?


A high-efficiency furnace has total annual fuel usage efficiency (AFUE) rating of 90 to 97%. In other words, a furnace at the higher end of this range will convert 97% of the combusted natural gas to usable energy, with the remaining three percent exhausted to the outside.


By comparison, many older furnaces have an AFUE of only about 60%, meaning 40% of the fuel is wasted.


How do they work?


The majority of high-efficiency furnaces make use of a condensing method. Two heat exchangers pull sufficient heat from combustion gases that moisture in the gas condenses, releasing additional workable heat. The condensate is piped to a floor drain and exhaust gases are cool enough to be vented out a sidewall with a four-inch piece of plastic pipe, therefore doing away with the need for a chimney. Because the combustion in these types of furnaces is sealed, there is also no risk of carbon monoxide leakages.


Why should I purchase a high-efficiency furnace, isn't a mid-efficient one good enough?


You may buy a mid-efficiency model (78-84% AFUE rating), however, mid-efficiency furnaces are up to 19% less efficient than a high-efficiency model and therefore will raise your operating expenses and greenhouse gas emissions. Depending on exactly what model you purchase and the actual amount of vent piping needed, a high-efficiency furnace can cost about a third more to purchase and install than a mid-efficiency design.


Is it difficult to install a high-efficiency furnace?


Because of the growing popularity of high-efficiency furnaces a substantial amount of companies now possess significant experience installing them. The layout and space considerations of your home will determine exactly what ductwork is needed. For instance, most high-efficiency furnaces are vented, by a four-inch pipe, to an outside wall and combustion air is drawn in through plastic pipes.


Will I notice any difference in the heating of my house?


A high-efficiency furnace runs quieter than a mid-efficiency furnace and should make your house more comfortable with its ability to maintain a more constant temperature. You may notice it cycles on and off more often, but for shorter time periods, than your old furnace.


What size should my high-efficiency furnace be?


Size is determined by the total building envelope heat loss, therefore a heat loss calculation should be done to accurately determine size (available from heating contractors). Quite often high efficiency furnaces are being installed that are too big for the actual heating requirements. An experienced contractor can properly size your new furnace. A high-efficiency model can generally be somewhat smaller, in BTU input, than an older or a mid-efficiency furnace.


The size of furnace you'll need will be affected by the level of insulation and air tightness of your house. So it makes sense to plug those heat leaks and perhaps upgrade your insulation (especially under the roof, where you can get the most bang for your buck) before investing in a new furnace. By contrast, a too tightly-sealed house can affect air quality. Installing a fresh air intake or mechanical ventilation system will bring in and circulate fresh air, without causing drafts or heat loss.


How do I know the furnaces I'm looking at are high-efficiency models?


All high efficiency furnaces meet ENERGY STAR® standards and therefore will have an ENERGY STAR symbol on the furnace, on the packaging or promotional material. An Energy Guide label will indicate the furnace's efficiency percentage.


Should I consider getting a variable-speed motor to run the fan of my new furnace?


Yes. Although the cost of a direct-current, variable-speed motors is higher, the electricity consumption will be at least 30% less than with a conventional motor.
A variable-speed motor is a high-efficiency motor due to the precise electronic controls allowing it to operate efficiently at any speed. A standard AC motor's efficiency, on the other hand, drops off dramatically at lower speeds. Lower speed operation of the variable speed motor thus delivers savings, runs quieter, and provides more even temperature control throughout the home adding to occupant comfort.


How much maintenance does a high-efficiency furnace require?


A high-efficiency furnace should require no more maintenance than any other type of furnace. An annual maintenance check will help ensure your furnace is operating safely and at peak efficiency.
