26 Feb Why You Should Replace Your Old Furnace
Wondering whether it’s time to send your old furnace off to the HVAC afterlife and call in for a furnace installation, Albuquerque residents? There are a lot of reasons why one might want to replace an older furnace, or even a relatively newer furnace, such as efficiency and green considerations. Here are a few to consider if you’re unsure if you should replace your furnace.
Your furnace is the wrong size for your home
A sizing mistake with your furnace is something that can’t be easily rectified without a complete replacement — and the impact is fairly big. A furnace that’s too small will run constantly, quickly wearing itself down. A furnace that’s too big will cycle too often, never hitting its peak efficiency and therefore wasting immense amounts of energy. Either one will cost you in comfort, energy, and maintenance.
You want to upgrade to a greener technology
Whether you’re looking to push your power bills down or do your part for the environment, upgrading to newer, greener furnace solutions is a great reason to replace your old furnace. Especially if your furnace is old enough to pre-date Energy Star — if that’s the case, replace it pronto, because you’re wasting tons of money on energy.
You’re looking to change to a cheaper fuel source
Gas prices on the rise in your neighborhood? Electricity bills chewing through your wallet? If fuel prices have changed a lot in your area since you got your furnace, it might be reasonable to make a change. Even better, you can upgrade to a dual-fuel system, so you can utilize whatever makes the most sense for your current situation and prices.
Your furnace is old and on its last legs
Of course, the simplest reason to replace a furnace is that age is catching up to it and it just isn’t doing the job anymore. Whether it’s not heating enough, wasting too much energy, or simply making a racket and eating up way too much maintenance time, an old furnace can quickly become a sinkhole of time, money, and effort that can be a hassle to deal with.
If any of these apply to your situation, it’s time to consider an upgrade. Luckily for you, Axiom Home Services is a Trane Comfort Specialist and can replace your furnace without breaking the bank!
