Let’s talk about your furnace. You know, that box that sits next to your water heater, or perhaps in the depths of your basement.
(We hope it’s not as ominous looking as this one.)
Did you know that in order to maximize your furnace’s efficiency it should be cleaned every year or more?
It seems obvious, the the costs associated with having a plumber clean your furnace annually is more cost efficient than having an emergency serviceman dispatched at an inconvenient time! Regular maintenance can lower energy and fuel costs because your system won’t have to work as hard in order to get the job done. On that note, did you know that systems that have regular maintenance last an average of five to ten years longer.
There are many benefits to having a high-efficiency furnace installed in your home. High-efficiency furnaces can save you hundreds of dollars a year in heating costs. A furnace with an efficiency of 95% or higher can typically deliver heat savings of 20% to 35% more when compared to old furnaces. Furnaces from 1970 and earlier are in the 60% AFUE range! Older furnaces are also more susceptible to being damaged which might just leave you having to search furnace repair more often than you think.
Good news: You can offset the cost of having your high efficiency furnace installed and ensure that you keep your heating bills lower by servicing your furnace every year. In the long run, your furnace will have paid for itself in energy savings, and you’ll be helping the environment too!
