BENEFITS OF UPGRADING YOUR EXISTING FURNACE
Today’s furnaces are better and more energy efficient than ever, and Fox’s Heating & Cooling Specialists can show you how easy a new installation can be. Some of the benefits are:
- Older furnaces operate at efficiencies at or below 80%. If a furnace is only 80% efficient, that means $0.20 of each dollar of fuel used is not converted to heat and is wasted.
- New energy saving furnaces operate at up to 98% fuel efficiency, saving you money.
- Modulating furnaces, such as the Coleman Echelon Series, work to continuously maintain temperature in your house. They use less fuel because they are not stopping and starting all the time, and you will experience much greater comfort.
HOW CAN I TELL IF I NEED A NEW FURNACE?
Most Seattle homeowners replace their furnace when it gets older and starts to exhibit some symptoms, or when it just stops working. Poor furnace performance can be an indicator that you need a furnace repair, not necessarily a replacement. So it’s important to have a Fox HVAC Specialist inspect your existing equipment. Some of the aging signs to look for are:
- Burnt smell upon start-up
- Loud or unusual banging noises
- No longer producing the heat you expect
- Increasing heating bills
- Furnace is over 15 years old and key parts are wearing/worn out
DETERMINING THE COST OF A FURNACE INSTALLATION
There are several factors that determine the cost of a furnace installation in Seattle. Three of the primary ones are:
The first is proper sizing of the furnace to fit your home, condo or townhouse and provide the right amount of heat. Sizing does not mean the dimensions of the furnace, but the output in BTUs of heat and capacity to send that heat through a house of your size. The standard measurement done to correctly size the furnace is part of the Washington State Code and required in order to get a permit for installation.
The second is the energy efficiency of the furnace. Today’s furnaces have energy efficiencies from 80% up to 98% and in between. The higher efficiency furnaces (95% AFUE+) are more technologically advanced and more expensive, however most PSE gas customers will qualify for utility rebates.
The final one is the complexity of the installation and whether any additional components are needed for your system. The quality of the installation is very important in ensuring the proper performance of the furnace, delivery of the energy efficiency and wear of the parts. That’s why Fox’s Heating & Cooling team focuses on continuous training for furnace installation.
WHAT MAINTENANCE WILL A GAS FURNACE REQUIRE?
For Seattle homeowners who have gas, propane or oil furnaces, an annual furnace maintenance is recommended by all manufacturers, and is a standard best practice recommended by Energystar (EPA). Just like an oil change for your car, maintenance of your fuel burning furnace will keep that equipment in working order and maintain the energy efficiency of your furnace over time.
