Signs You Need a Furnace Replacement
A well-maintained furnace could last up to 25 years before requiring a full replacement. However, your furnace will probably need a repair every once in a while. If your unit is nearing the 15-year mark, then you might notice that the repairs are becoming more expensive and complex. Even if your furnace is still providing heat, it is worth considering a replacement at this point. A more obvious indicator that it’s time for a replacement is a full system breakdown. This can happen without warning if you aren’t proactive about yearly maintenance and tune-ups.
Choosing the Right Furnace
It isn’t necessarily the best idea to choose the biggest or most expensive furnace. Your contractor should make a few necessary calculations to ensure that you get exactly what you need according to your home’s size and requirements. A load calculation is even more precise because it includes information about the home, such as the roof type and primary construction materials. After you choose the furnace that’s the best fit for your home, it’s time to move forward with the removal and furnace installation process.
Gas Furnace Installation
Safe removal of the old unit is vital when working with a gas supply, so never attempt to do this alone. A contractor will make sure that the old parts are all properly disposed of after the removal. The new unit is then prepared for the installation process by removing any loose parts and deciding on the exact placement.
It is usually easiest to follow the placement of the old furnace so that the preparation work is very simple. Your installer is going to perform a perfect installation of the new product so it has quiet operation, adequate support, and the necessary drain pans to catch condensation. The unit is placed first so it can be connected to the existing duct system and properly sealed. Vent pipes are connected as the final step before working with the gas supply.
After everything is connected and in place, the technician is going to run a series of safety tests so that you are cleared to start using the new furnace.
Electric Furnace Installation
Replacing an electric furnace with another is a much simpler process than working with gas. If the unit only heats one room, there should be no issues connecting with a duct system. A unit that is intended to heat the entire house has to be removed from the existing ducts before the new installation begins
Choosing to work in the same area for the new system is going to easily accommodate a new furnace. Otherwise, the technician will have to go through a few extra steps to ensure that there are adequate airflow and insulation. The unit itself should be very simple to connect to the power supply and existing ducts so that it is ready to use in no time.
Benefits of a New Furnace
The best reason to invest in a new furnace is the opportunity to cut down on operating costs. When the temperatures drop in Tucson, your furnace will be working overtime to keep your home warm. Newer models are built with greater energy efficiency to provide the right temperature without too much strain. It is easy to keep a new unit working at maximum efficiency if you are committed to routine maintenance and an annual tune-up as needed.
