We’re sure you have many questions about furnaces so we’ve compiled these tips for you.
Most people rush to purchase heating systems just as the winter seasons are about to start. And that’s poor timing because furnace prices are higher at that time. If you want a new furnace at a low price, you must act quickly. Who doesn’t want to save a little extra cash? Yes, we do.
Early spring or fall is the best times of year to purchase a furnace. That’s because HVAC companies get fewer customers in the spring and fall; they prefer to lower their prices. As they wait for summer, most homeowners are more worried about air conditioning in the spring. As a result, air conditioning units are more expensive at these periods, but the good news is that furnaces are less expensive.
If you try to buy your furnace on your own, you can probably get too large system, which wastes energy and costs more money. Or, pick too small unit that fails to heat your house adequately. Systems that are either too big or too small tend to fail faster.
Professionals can help you get the right unit. They would either replace your furnace with a new unit with the same capacity as your old one or estimate the best furnace size for your house.
Even for brand new heating systems, routine maintenance is needed. Check the air filter once every month after your newest furnace is fitted, and uninstall it when it becomes dirty. Once a year, you should get your furnace inspected by a specialist to avoid inconvenient breakdowns, maintain high indoor air quality, and keep your family comfortable.
The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating (AFUE) is the industry standard for measuring furnace efficiency. This is the annual percentage of fossil fuels converted into usable heat. The AFUE score ranges from 80 to 98.5 percent. All new furnaces must come with a label that includes the AFUE rating and the approximate annual operating costs under various conditions.
The cost of a more reliable furnace with a higher AFUE rating would be higher, but the savings on utility bills could make it worthwhile. In the long run, the most energy-efficient furnace you can afford is typically the most cost-effective option.
