Most homeowners don’t look forward to the prospect of having to replace any large appliance, especially a furnace. Once the home’s furnace is no longer operating efficiently and causing high repair bills, replacing the unit will be more a relief than a burden. Investing in a new, more reliable and efficient furnace will relieve the anxiety cause by appliance breakdowns on frigid winter nights. Griesemer Plumbing & Mechanical Service is here to help you decide if it’s time to replace (or repair) your furnace and install the right unit the best fits your needs!

Why New Furnaces Are Better

Once the furnace’s repair bills approach or exceed 50 percent of the value of the appliance, it’s time to replace it. If a home’s system is more than 12 years old and is starting to have to be repaired frequently, replacement should be seriously considered. A new furnace may cost customers a lot at the time of purchase, but will ultimately save them money in the long run. Product developments create new systems that increase in efficiency every year. Energy efficient units can save homeowners hundreds of dollars in heating costs per year. In addition, tax credits of up to 30 percent of the appliance’s cost are given for high-efficiency units.

New systems are healthier for homeowners because they are more capable of controlling humidity. Lower moisture levels in the air inhibit the growth of mold and mildew which can release their spores into the air causing allergies and other problems. More up to date models of furnaces are better equipped to control temperatures at a more steady rate which results in a more comfortable atmosphere in the home.

Different Types of Furnaces

There are several different types of furnaces that homeowners can select. Decisions are usually made according to the preferred type of fuel that will be used to run the equipment.

The central warm air furnace works by using gas, fuel oil or electricity. The air is moved through a system of ducts in the home either by gravity or forced air. In the gravity system, cool air travels down through cold air returns near the ceiling helping the air warmed by the furnace to push up through vents in the floor. Forced air models use a fan to blow the heated air through the ducts.

In steam or hot water systems, heated water or steam is delivered to radiators, convectors or pipes in or against the wall. More uncommonly the heated water or steam is delivered to pipes set in a concrete floor or slab.

Heat pumps provide both heat and air conditioning by use of a compressor and indoor and outdoor coils.

A pipeless furnace is located in a basement and delivers air into an enlarged vent to the room directly above it.

Replacing a furnace is one of the biggest decisions a homeowner can make. Consulting a professional service like Griesemer Plumbing & Mechanical can help buyers to make the right decision that fits their budget and requirements. When the purchase is made, customers can rest assured knowing that a competent service technician will expertly install the new appliance. Give us a call at (317) 881-9536!
