Top 5 reasons to invest in a new heating system
1. Improved energy efficiency
The latest furnaces and heating systems are more energy-efficient than systems that were built a decade ago. They use less energy and are more efficient in heating the room. Newer systems have an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of more than 90 percent. The higher rating means that the furnace costs less to operate, resulting in lower energy bills.
2. New furnace when combined with a programmable thermostat saves you money
Another perk of upgrading to a new furnace is that they’re compatible with programmable thermostats. These thermostats can be programmed to set temperatures automatically. You can program them to set temperatures according to the usage during different times of the day.
For instance, you can set the furnace temperature to be lower when no one is inside the house. Also, you can set different zones in your home. This will provide you with greater control over the temperature—and your heating bills.
Aside from a more comfortable home, pairing a programmable thermostat with a new heating system will result in much lower energy bills. You can save up to hundreds of dollars annually.
3. You and your family will be more comfortable
Modern furnaces feature variable-speed technology. Unlike the traditional fixed-speed technology, the technology in modern furnaces is more efficient in heating the rooms. They can maintain the temperature at a more constant level.
Also, modern furnaces provide superior humidity control. By upgrading to a new furnace, your home’s comfort will be improved.
4. Safety counts
Newer furnaces also come with more advanced safety features. They are less likely to develop leaks. By virtue of being new, they’re also not going to have problems that older systems might, such as a cracked heat exchanger.
5. Peace of mind
By upgrading to a new furnace you will less likelihood of breakdowns when you need it the most.
