If your furnace is over fifteen years old, requires constant maintenance, or is costing you significantly more in energy costs than it used to, it may be time to invest in a new system. Buying a new furnace can be intimidating if you’re not an HVAC expert, it can be difficult to choose the right furnace for you. If you’re in Ottawa and you’re looking to replace your furnace, here’s what you need to consider for a successful purchase.
The Size Of Your Home
The size of your home will directly impact the furnace size appropriate for installation. A smaller home takes less energy and costs less to warm, so you’re most likely to purchase a smaller system than if you were in a larger home. Purchasing a furnace that is too small or too large for your home will cause it to run inefficiently and heighten your energy bills while shortening your furnace’s lifespan. Before purchasing a furnace, make sure to consider the square footage of your home first.
The Energy Efficiency Of The System
While most modern furnaces are energy efficient, they’re not all created equal. It’s important to look out for the most energy efficient system that fits your needs, this will save you money and reduce your carbon footprint in the long run. Since Ottawa winters are particularly cold, it’s important to find a furnace that won’t cost you too much while you’re running it all season.
