It is always important to do your homework when your looking for a new replacement furnace for your home. When looking for your new furnace it is best to receive at least 3 estimates. When looking over your new furnace estimates make sure you are comparing apples with apples. Here are some of the most important things to look at:
Equipment and Labor warranties
Check consumer reports for the equipment being purchased and its reliability.
Check the BBB for the company your dealing with along with any customer reviews.
Any additional changes to your system that comes with the new furnace being installed such as: Thermostats, Humidifiers, Main gas shut-off, 110v power switches and Chimney Liners
Be aware of all Terms and Conditions
This checklist will help you make the best choice you can. We hope this helps anyone looking for replacement units this winter season.
Here with the winter season upon us, there are a few helpful hints to helping yourself stay warm. Always get your furnace or boiler cleaned and started by a certified professional. Throughout the winter make sure you change your filter once a month. The 3 month air filters are not recommended due to the longer time span of air restriction that will put strain on your furnace blower motor and safety limits in the furnace. Remember anything that breathes better, works and runs better.
When a furnace does not receive adequate air flow it can overheat the furnace and cause a short cycling. A short cycling unit is when a furnace turns on and runs briefly and then shuts down before the thermostat has had an opportunity to satisfy the preset temperature. This type of operation will dramatically reduce the annual fuel efficiency of the furnace.
By allowing a certified technician to clean and start your heating unit you can save yourself costly repairs or early replacement of your furnace. I hope that this brief thought for the this winters heating season helps you out
