At one point or another in a homeowner’s life, you start to notice that maybe your furnace isn’t quite running the way it used to, and you’ve noticed your energy bills have been on a steady increase. You may automatically think replacing your furnace will just cost you even more money in the long run. However, this might not be the case for many. Today we want to discuss the benefits of why buying a new furnace will save you money.

  1. As everything else in life seems to get more and more costly, so does energy and gas. It’s important to think about the efficiency of your furnace. Many do not realize that their current furnace is running at 60% efficiency whereas current furnaces run at 97% efficiency. Thus meaning that for every dollar you are paying to run your furnace, forty cents is being wasted. As opposed to three cents being wasted with current furnaces. Being in Canada with a typically colder climate, your furnace is running for what can feel like the majority of the year. This can really add up on your energy bills over time.
  2. With anything that is old and used continually, more issues arise as time goes on towards the end of its working life. While some repairs may be warranted and give your furnace another year or two of life, this however, may not always be the case for some. Repairs can become quite costly as older units are more difficult to repair and can even be considerably more challenging to find the right parts to fix the problem at hand. This can become a headache in itself for the homeowner as it can begin to feel as if you are throwing money at a furnace trying to keep it working for as long as possible. However, in the long run it is potentially costing you much more than if you just had replaced the furnace to begin with.
  3. The environment will thank you for making the switch to an energy-efficient furnace as it is requiring less resources to heat your home as opposed to your old furnace (i.e. tip #1). Therefore, taking some of the load off our planet. Moreover, your furnace is also not having to run as long and as hard to meet your heating needs. The latest furnaces are designed to run as minimally as possible while still meeting and maintaining household needs.
  4. At Hammers Heating and Cooling not only do we install furnaces, we also offer yearly maintenance of them for a discounted price when paired with a maintenance agreement. Having regular yearly maintenance on your furnace will mitigate any potential issues as an inspection and clean will be done by one of our knowledgeable technicians and you will continue to have peace of mind knowing that your furnace is running at its optimal level.
