If you have a furnace, it is likely that you will want to do everything you can to keep it working well for many years. However, even the best furnaces usually only last up to 20 years before repairs become too expensive to justify spending more money on an old system. When the time comes for you to have your system replaced, Jennings Heating and Cooling provides reliable installation services in Kent.
Do I Need a New Furnace?
The first thing you should consider when deciding whether or not to replace your system is the age of your unit. If your furnace is more than 15 years old, it is time to start thinking about investing in a new system. While it isn’t always necessary to replace a furnace until it has broken down and the cost to repair it is too high, you may also want to consider how much your old system is costing to run.
Efficiency, or the lack of it, is a major reason that homeowners choose to upgrade to a more modern system. At Jennings Heating and Cooling, we install furnace systems that have an AFUE rating of up to 99 percent. If you have had your system for more than a decade, it is likely that it only has an efficiency rating between 56 and 70 percent. Today, most new furnaces have an AFUE rating of at least 80 percent, so an upgrade is likely to save you money in the long run.
One of the biggest reasons to consider a furnace installation is if you are not comfortable in your home. A powerful and efficient furnace will be able to provide adequate heating in every room of the home without costing too much to run. If you are having to set your thermostat too high just to feel comfortable, or if you are having to wear several layers of clothing to be warm, it may be a good idea to have a new system installed. You may have a furnace that is too small for your needs.
Which Furnace is Right For My Home?
Once you have decided that you want to have a new furnace installed, you will need our help to find the perfect furnace for your home. The first thing to identify is whether a system that runs on electricity, oil, or natural gas is a better fit. Each system has benefits and downsides, but the biggest consideration is typically the price of each source in your neighborhood. You should then decide how much you are willing to pay to have a high-efficiency system. We can help you find the most efficient system that is within your budget.
Finally, it is important to consider the size of the furnace that you want to purchase. At Jennings Heating and Cooling, we always schedule a home visit to evaluate your home’s heating needs. We want to find a size that is big enough to heat the whole home, but not so big that you are wasting energy.
