Your Guide to Buying a Furnace
Frigid temperatures are here, which means you’ve probably run into a problem or two with your furnace. But if repairs just aren’t cutting it, chances are you’re better off replacing your unit. If you’re thinking about purchasing a new furnace but still aren’t sure if it’s the right decision, consider these guidelines:
1. Know the age. Not sure how old your furnace is? It’s not uncommon if you moved into a home with a pre-existing system. A simple solution to this problem is to jot down the model number and search for it online. If your furnace is over 20 years old, repairs most likely won’t do your home heating justice any longer.
2. Weigh the costs. Let’s talk about efficiency. Is your furnace costing you more money than usual? Furnaces often lose their efficiency as they age. So even though an upgrade can be pricey, weigh the difference between the cost to repair and the cost to replace. And remember that replacing your system will likely help you save big time in the long run.
3. You hear complaints. Whether your family complains over loud noises or chills in the nighttime, it might be time to replace your furnace. The purpose of a furnace is to keep your home comfortable at all times throughout the winter, and if you’re feeling more uncomfortable than not, the wisest decision would be to purchase a new one.
