Your heating system is an important aspect of your home energy bill, comfort and well-being. When it is time to upgrade or install a modern furnace, the NATE-certified technicians from Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will give you specific recommendations for cost-effective and efficient heating options, resulting in a healthier, more comfortable home.
Your old furnace may last way beyond its intended lifespan, but it will most likely cost you more in energy bills and repairs than a modern replacement. As your furnace ages, internal parts wear out and output efficiency decreases. Considering all the innovations in heating equipment in recent years, this is the perfect time to invest. New furnaces are up to 30% more efficient than their counterparts from a decade ago. The installation of a high-efficiency, sophisticated heating system can easily pay for itself in reduced monthly costs, and you’ll enjoy superior, more even and dependable warmth.
Installing the Right Furnace for Your Home
When it comes to heating systems, size is the difference between optimum efficiency and endless problems. The furnace’s specifications must meet the needs of your home. A unit that is too small will fail to keep your house comfortable during severe drops in temperature. As the system struggles to meet temperature demands, it will continually run. However, an oversized system will cycle on and off more frequently, putting excess wear on components, wasting energy and causing temperature fluctuations. The repeated cycling may lead to frequent repairs, overheating, and premature failure. To be sure of correct sizing and proper installation, trust your comfort needs to the professionals from Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. Our factory-trained team has the knowledge, experience and dedication to calculate your heating needs according to industry standards, taking into account the size, design and construction of your home.
The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating measures how efficiently a furnace converts gas into heating energy. Since efficient furnaces generate fewer emissions, they are more environmentally responsible. The price of a new furnace increases along with the AFUE percentage. You can, however, recover the additional cost through reduced energy bills over the life of the furnace.
