- Furnace Replacement, Harding, Heating, Ottawa
We’re about halfway through our winter weather, but there are still a number of cold days in our future. If you’re like many homeowners in Ottawa, your heating system has likely been working in overdrive lately. This is especially tough for older units that may be struggling to keep up with the high demand of this frigid spell. Instead of crossing your fingers every time you turn on the furnace, it may be time to upgrade to a new high efficiency furnace.
One of the biggest advantages of upgrading is the increased efficiency from a higher AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating. The AFUE measures how efficiently fuel is converted to heat. New high efficiency furnaces are nearly 100% efficient, while older models can fall into the 80% range. This increased efficiency translates into lower monthly energy bills.
Protection From Warranties
Manufacturers guarantee certain parts of heating systems and cover the cost of replacement parts, but these warranties don’t last forever. If you have a heating system that’s over a decade old, it’s likely not covered by the original warranty anymore and any repairs will have to be paid for out-of-pocket. With a new high efficiency furnace, you’ll have renewed protection from the manufacturer in addition to the peace of mind that a new heating system is more reliable than your older unit.
The technology behind a new high efficiency furnace can make your home more comfortable. If you’re currently living with uneven heating or a loud furnace, a new system can drastically cut down on these inconveniences. Additionally, indoor air quality and humidity control can be enhanced with an upgrade—leading to a more comfortable environment for you and your family.
There are many benefits of upgrading to a new high efficiency furnace; with a number of cold days ahead, make sure you can count on your heating system to keep you and your family warm.
