How to Determine if it's Time for a New Furnace
Buying a new furnace is no one's favorite thing to do. But having an outdated furnace in your home could actually be costing you more money in the long run than a newer model.
Any furnace installed before 1992 is most likely obsolete by today's standards. The minimum efficiency standard set by the U.S. Department of Energy is 80%. This means that at least 80 percent of the furnace's fuel is converted to heat.
The more efficiently your equipment is working, the less energy it is using and therefore the less money you have to spend in the long run just to maintain comfort in your home.
Reasons to ditch your old furnace for a new one:
- Unreasonably high energy bills
- Inconsistent heating/No heat
- Your furnace was installed before 1992
- Your furnace does not have an EnergyGuide label. (inefficient or too old)
