Let’s say this up front. If your furnace is more than 12 years old, replacing it is almost always a better move than repairing it.
Today’s high-efficiency gas furnaces can reach ratings in the mid-90s – something unimaginable years ago. Heating oil furnaces have come a long way too, with typical efficiency ratings in the mid-80s.
To put that another way, your current 12-year-old furnace may be running with an efficiency rating in the 65- to 70-percent range – which means that 30¢ to 35¢ of every dollar you spend on oil and gas is being wasted rather than being used to warm the air in your home.
You may not realize it, but your furnace accounts for roughly two-thirds of your energy bill. So you need one of today’s energy-efficient oil furnaces to ensure that you are saving as much as possible on your home energy costs.
In addition, your furnace plays a huge role in how comfortable your family feels in your home and how well other heating, cooling and indoor-air-quality systems function with it—including whole-house humidifiers and air-cleaning systems, which enhance your comfort and savings even further.
If you have a recent-model oil furnace, you should schedule regular maintenance to maximize its working life span.
But if you have an older furnace, we encourage you to speak with our experts about how a new, high-efficiency model will help you save on energy costs and help protect the environment, among other benefits. We will also help determine which model of furnace best suits your home, your family and your budget.
