Choose a Gas Furnace Wisely
With 50% of your home’s energy bill going toward heating and cooling, it makes sense to choose a gas furnace wisely. No one can offer you better guidance when buying a high efficiency furnace than Bend Heating.
Chances are you didn’t purchase or install your existing unit. Your personal needs may be different than the original owners were. Perhaps the layout of your home might have changed due to a remodeling or how you are currently using the space. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will take all of this into account when advising you on the best replacement furnace. Moreover, we’ll explain how you can receive improved energy efficiency. Consider these important factors when choosing a gas furnace:
1. Energy Efficient Gas Furnace
Energy efficiencies have drastically improved over recent years. If you have a gas furnace that is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider a higher efficiency furnace.
You may not know if your gas furnace is running efficient or not so we do recommend giving a HVAC contractor a call for maintenance. At Bend Heating, we have installed and repaired thousands of gas furnaces and we have seen them all.
2. The Size You Actually Need
Nothing is more important than having your equipment properly sized. Many contractors don’t know how to properly evaluate your home to make sure you get the best fit. By having the proper gas furnace size installed, you’ll increase your homes efficiency, decrease your chances of a short cycle, have the right variables for your home and much more. Bend Heating may just be the right HVAC contractor to help with sizing your furnace.
3. Proper Ventilation
With new, improved efficiency furnaces venting you want to make sure your duct work is sealed properly and venting properly. As a homeowner, it’s highly unlikely you can determine if home damage is being caused by improper ventilation. Therefore, you want to hire a certified HVAC installer that can discover if your furnace is running efficiently and has proper ventilation.
4. Compare Costs
As a general rule of thumb, higher efficiency units will cost more than lower efficiency units. However, a high efficiency gas unit will help pay for itself because of the annual savings in operating costs.
We recommend evaluating your options and get an experts opinion. At Bend Heating, we will layout your furnace options and help you make the best decision for you and your home.
5. Choose the Right Contractor
At the end of the day, the most important step in replacing your home’s heating system is choosing the right contractor for your gas furnace. No matter how well-built a furnace is, the comfort, reliability and energy efficiency it provides is in the hands of the contractor installing it. So make sure to take some time on discovering which HVAC contractor would get the job done right the first time.
