Is your home ready for the first frost? Have you replaced your old and inefficient furnace already? If your answer is NO, then consider making an upgrade.
However, buying a furnace is a daunting task! If you commit one mistake during your purchase, you may suffer from poor comfort through the years and put that huge investment to waste.
Read this blog to know the factors that you need to consider when buying a new furnace for your home.
Warranty and Rebates
Every furnace should come with a warranty. Within the covered period, the contract will handle the repair costs if the system needs services. It’s significant to note that some manufacturers offer rebates on high-efficiency models, which can offset the initial cost. Local utility rebates are also available in your area if you opt for the high-efficiency systems. Talk to your HVAC contractor to discuss the money-back options that fit your needs.
Modern furnaces have a noise reduction feature, unlike your old heating system. So if you are looking for quiet operation, you need to replace your old furnace with modern equipment that features variable-speed blower motors and insulated cabinets.
The HVAC system is among home appliances that consume more energy when used. But by opting for a high-efficiency furnace, you can cut the cost while still getting the same comfort level. Even the modern minimum-efficiency furnaces can be more efficient than the systems manufactured ten or fifteen years ago. Talk to your contractor to know the efficient features right for you.
The size of your furnace has a significant effect on your efficiency and comfort. Leave the job to the professionals to find the correct size of the heating unit for your home. Your local contractor will perform a thorough calculation (measured in BTU or tons) to determine the system size needed for your space. The estimation considers your entire homes space, from window efficiency to square footage. So if you have no idea about the right size of furnace for your home, it is wise to talk with your contractor.
