Heating systems can last for decades—or even longer—but just because a furnace still turns on doesn’t mean it’s providing optimal comfort or even heating the home efficiently. Running an older furnace can produce uneven heating and could even be contributing to higher monthly energy bills. To ensure maximum comfort and efficiency this season, upgrade to a new furnace before the worst of winter weather arrives.
During extremely cold weather, a furnace has to work harder to keep your home at a consistently warm temperature. If the system is old and unreliable, there’s a good possibility of a furnace breakdown during cold weather when you need it most. Replacing the heating system before a serious furnace problem occurs could mean the difference between being comfortable during the coldest day of the year and scrambling to find a technician last minute to schedule furnace replacement in the middle of the night.
In addition to increased reliability, upgrading to a new furnace can help lower monthly energy bills. Older furnaces have a lower AFUE rating, which means they aren’t as efficient. Replacing an old furnace with a new heating system can decrease the amount of fuel it takes to heat the home, which usually translates to lower monthly hydro bills.
Upgrading to a new furnace will improve reliability and comfort and planning for replacement is less stressful than trying to replace the system in the middle of winter when you’re in a rush to get the heat back on.
