When is it Time for a New Furnace Installation?
With Alberta’s cold winter days and high energy costs, it is important to have a gas furnace that is dependable and economical. You know you need a new furnace when it breaks down and becomes so outdated it is not fixable. But should you wait until it breaks down? Use our checklist to help determine whether it is time to replace your furnace:
- THE AGE OF YOUR SYSTEM – Start by checking the age of your furnace. Many older homes still have their original furnace which could be at the end of its lifespan. The average lifespan of a furnace ranges from 15-20 years, depending upon maintenance and usage. To find the age, locate the owner’s manual or look up the system’s serial number which should be located on the furnace itself.
- RISING ENERGY BILLS – An increase in energy bills can mean that your system is running less efficiently. A new furnace runs up to 50% more efficient.
- EXCESSIVE DUST, DIRT, SOOT OR RUST PARTICLES – If you noticed more dust, dander, soot, rust or dirt building up within your home while your furnace is running, it’s a sign to install a new system.
- HOME HUMIDITY PROBLEMS – Humidity is a concern for all homeowners in the winter, especially if you have wood floors. If you notice that the air within your home tends to be dry, your furnace could be to blame.
- ROOMS ARE HEATING UNEVENLY – If you notice that different rooms within your home are heated unevenly (or not heated at all) it is likely due to your furnace. As your furnace ages, it can be more difficult to push heat evenly throughout your home.
- FURNACE BECOMES UNUSUALLY NOISY OR DEVELOPS RATTLES, BUZZES OR HUMS – If you notice your system running louder than normal or develops rattles, buzzes or hums, it’s time to replace due to cracks, leaks or other structural issues.
- VISIBLE SIGNS OF RUST OR CRACKS IN OR AROUND SYSTEM – Going back to the last point, if notice signs of rust or cracks developing in or around your furnace, it is time for a replacement. This naturally occurs over time as your furnace ages.
- FREQUENT REPAIRS – Look back at your repair bills and note how many times you had to call on an HVAC contractor to repair your heating system within the last two years. If you see your repair man more than your friends, it is time to call Alberta Mountain Air for a Free Estimate!
If you have noticed any of the above signs from your furnace, it is critical to speak with an HVAC contractor to discuss replacement options. Not only is it important to have a working heating system throughout winter, but it is important to keep your family safe. Problems with your furnace can lead to health issues from carbon monoxide, dust and dander, and other things that are bad to inhale
Four Key Factors to Consider when Choosing a New Furnace
When you call in one of our technicians to explore the right furnace unit for your home, there are a few key factors to consider. In order to give customers an accurate recommendation and price, we will review these 4 key factors.
- ENERGY EFFICIENCY – When it comes to lowering your heating bills, the higher performing efficient systems will lower your heating bills however they also have higher upfront costs. When choosing the right furnace, you will want to consider whether you want to invest more upfront, in order to have the lowest heating bills possible from an energy efficient furnace system.
- SYSTEM SIZE – The size of your home may dictate how larger of a system you will need in order to achieve the comfort and energy efficient goals. In some cases, two furnace units may be required to circulate heat to all rooms. Our technicians will evaluate your home and recommend the most effective way to meet your budget and goals.
- COMFORT FEATURES – A new system can come with various comfort features that are optional and cost extra. For example, variable speed blowers or two stage burners are mor effective at evening out temperatures throughout the home.
- PERMITS & CERTIFICATIONS – Every installation includes a required city permit and inspection to ensure peace of mind. You will know that your new product has been approved by the local inspectors. Permits can only be applied for by technically certified tradesmen.
