Advantages of an Energy Efficient Furnace
Older, less efficient furnaces cost you more to heat your home each month. Typically, around 44 percent of your utility bill goes toward heating or cooling. So if you're looking to save money on energy costs, the first place to find savings is with your HVAC system.
A new energy-efficient furnace or heat pump is a smart way to invest in your home and plays a big part in keeping your utility bills down. You might be surprised how much money your older, inefficient unit is wasting each month. Wouldn't you rather keep that extra money?
Repair or Replace My Furnace?
Sometimes a little service is all you need to stay up and running. But how do you know when it's time to invest in a new HVAC system rather than put money into an old one? To be able to determine if it's time to invest in a new furnace, you really need to look at three factors:
- Your furnace efficiency. How old is your furnace? Has it received regular annual maintenance or has it been ignored over the years? You might be surprised how much money your inefficient furnace is costing you each month.
- The cost of fuel. Are you currently using gas, electric, oil, or propane to heat your home? Is the cost of that fuel trending upward? What do you project fuel costs to be 5, 10, or 15 years from now?
- The "heat load" of your home. How much energy is required to keep the inside of your home at a comfortable temperature? Crain's trained, licensed technicians can help you determine your heat load.
Our HVAC technicians can help you sort all these factors so you can make an educated decision if it's time to replace or repair your current furnace system. We install brands from leading manufacturers including Lennox, Trane, Comfortmaker, Carrier, and more.
