Buying a New Furnace

06 Feb 2013

It may be February, but winter is not over. Most people wait until after the winter to replace the furnace, but you may be one of the unfortunate ones who has to buy a new furnace now.

If you are buying a new furnace now, be sure the heating contractor knows the size of your house in order to determine the size of the furnace for the space.

A furnace that is too large leaves gaps in temperature when it turns on until it catches up with the thermostat. Your house ends up cooling down until the next cycle and this creates an inconsistent temperature.

A furnace that is the right size for the space will be able to better regulate a constant temperature making it run much more efficiently.

Don’t use price as the main factor when buying a furnace. Annual operating costs for all of the furnaces you are considering should be your main concern.

Efficiencies can vary drastically depending on price, which means that if you pay more up front now, you'll still enjoy lower heating bills for 10 or 15 years.

Many homeowners get confused over purchase agreements and warranty information. Greater Boston Plumbing and Heating is a reputable installer who will be sure to explain the purchase agreement and warranty information as well as explain exactly what you are getting.

Regular maintenance of your heating and cooling system will keep the furnace performing like it should, keep your family warm, and lower your energy bills.
