Purchasing a new furnace is a big investment. With the average lifetime of a furnace being 20 years, the decision you make now will impact you for a long time. With a quality furnace, you and your family can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that your home’s indoor climate can be properly maintained.
What You Should Look for in a New Furnace
There are many choices when it comes to furnaces, so it’s important to know what you should be looking for.
- Fuel source – If your old furnace operated on oil, you may assume that your new furnace needs to as well. But you may be surprised to learn that it’s possible to replace an oil furnace with a gas furnace, and vice versa. If you’ve ever longed to get away from buying fuel oil, this may be a good time to consider your alternatives. Of course, oil furnaces are attractive to homeowners, too. An HVAC professional can help you to weigh the merits and drawbacks of each fuel type.
- Efficiency – Furnace efficiency levels play a major role in your ultimate energy savings. In fact, a furnace that no longer operates efficiently is worth replacing for that reason alone. Inefficient furnaces waste fuel and increase energy bills unnecessarily. Newer furnaces have been made to generate much more energy than they use. Generally speaking, you should look for a furnace that can consistently deliver between 80% and 96.7% efficiency.
- Cost – Many homeowners have a limited budget to work with when replacing a furnace. Cost is a consideration that shouldn’t be ignored in order to acquire a reliable, long-lasting new furnace. Look for a friendly brand that offers rebates to customers in order to maximize savings. Carrier is a great example of a brand that offer rebates. Financing programs are also available, so speak to your HVAC representative to find out just how simple it may be to economize on your new furnace purchase.
- Warranty – As mentioned, the average lifespan of a brand new furnace is about 20 years. However, some brands of lesser quality may not last quite so long, while others operate at near peak efficiency long after the 20th year. It’s impossible to predict, but it is possible to protect your furnace investment with a good warranty. Remember that not all warranties are the same, so go through warranty offers carefully with an HVAC professional to ensure you are getting the coverage you need and want, before you make your final purchase decision.
Carrier Brand Furnaces Are Some of the Best
The one brand that stands above others as far as efficiency, quality, warranty, and cost is Carrier. Carrier has been solving the world’s indoor climate problems since the 1900s when its founder, Willis Carrier, invented the air conditioner. Today, the owners and employees of Carrier continue the tradition of quality through the manufacturing of furnaces and other units that homeowners can rely on.
