When To Repair Or Replace Your Heating System
At Delta, we understand that a new furnace can be a large investment, and we often want to get the most out of our current furnace before installing a new one. If you’re wondering if you should attempt to repair your current furnace or call for the installation of a new one, there are several tell-tale signs that it may be time to replace.
A new furnace may be the best choice for you if:
- Your current furnace is requiring more maintenance and repairs than it used to
- Your current furnace is over ten years old
- You notice that your energy bills are becoming more and more expensive
- You’re interested in being more environmentally friendly
- You’ve noticed hot and cold areas or uneven heating throughout your home
- Your current furnace is circulating between on and off without cause
- Your current furnace is releasing cold air
- Your current furnace is making unusual noises
Save On Heating Costs With An Energy Efficient Furnace
Standard-efficiency furnaces convert roughly 80% of the energy from gas into heat. High-efficiency furnaces convert 90-97% (depending on the model) of the energy from gas into heat. So basically: high-efficiency furnaces use less fuel.
If your furnace efficiency is below 90%, it’s useful to know how much you can lower your heating costs to determine if you should replace your furnace right away or if you could wait. You’ll want to determine if you can save enough money in fuel costs to justify replacing the upgrade.
- Start with your yearly gas bill to figure out much how much you’re paying for the natural gas used to heat your hot water for the whole year. Most people use about the same amount of hot water for showering, dish washing, and washing clothes all year round, so you need to figure out how much natural gas you use monthly to heat water.
- Look up your bill for a warm weather month when you were home with the furnace off but not frequently using a natural gas barbeque.
- Take that monthly amount and multiply it by 12 to get your yearly cost to heat water.
- Then subtract your water heating costs from what you paid over the year for natural gas.
- Take your resulting number and multiply it by your furnace efficiency. It’s usually listed on the side of your furnace (or boiler). Turn it into a decimal. If your furnace it 83% efficient, it would be .83. That number you have is the absolute minimum cost for a fuel-fired appliance (for example natural gas or propane) if it were 100% efficient.
- You can then reuse the formula with your new furnace options.
- Use results of Step 6 to calculate your savings by replacing your furnace with each option.
Taking time to do this math can help you determine if the savings on your fuel costs are enough to upgrade your furnace.
Energy-efficient furnaces are more durable and reliable than older models, require less maintenance and repair, and can be very budget-friendly. At Delta, we strive to provide our customers with affordable and efficient furnace installation to make the most out of their home comfort.
