There’s nothing more comforting than having a quiet, well-running furnace keeping you warm all winter long. So, if things ever go “bump” in the night,” remember you’ve got All Purpose Heating and Air available 365 days a year to keep your heating system running great.
Whether you need preventative service, repairs, or are considering a system overhaul, keep in mind that your energy costs are directly related to the efficiency of your heating system.
If you see your monthly gas or electricity costs going up, it might be more than just Mother Nature knocking at the door with winter cold. A poorly running system drains your energy and your pocketbook by burning more heat than it should. A well-maintained system can produce warmth for less, and save you money. Don’t put off an inspection, it will only cost you money!
A heating inspection can uncover flaws in your heating system like duct leaks, or you may be headed for a few costlier repairs, but it’s best to find out now. If you have an older system that needs substantial work, you’ll need to decide whether the repairs are worth the cost, or if a whole new system makes sense.
Remember that the more efficient your system is, the lower your monthly energy costs. A poorly working heater can cost you as much as $95 a month in lost energy. You’ll recoup that cost quickly, even if your repairs run $800 or so. On the other hand, if your furnace is more than 10-years old the monthly savings from a new system may make the decision easier. The average homeowner can expect 13 to 18 years of service from a typical furnace, according to Consumer Reports.
Replacing your Heating System
A new heating system will likely run close to$2,000, but the peace-of-mind and monthly savings are big selling points. The size of your home and the AFUE of the new unit will affect the price you pay. A highly-efficient system will be more costly, between $4,000 and $6,500. All Purpose Heating and Air will be happy to give you several choices for repair and replacement costs, explaining the benefits of both.
It’s important that you work with a competent, reliable contractor for your heating needs. They’ll be able to offer great service and expert advice. A heating system that’s too small for your home will work overtime to try and keep up. You’ll likely be left feeling cold and the wear and tear on the system will lead to early repair costs.
Likewise, a system that’s too large will cost more upfront and still put added wear on your existing piping and ducts. Proper duct size is important for both efficiency and noise reduction. To get the best advice and prices, make sure you work with a contractor that’s been around long enough to back up their work with years of experience.
