I’ve started looking into a new gas furnace for our home. My new heating plan is around twenty years ancient & start to struggle. The winters in our local area are long & brutally cold. All of us need a heating plan that operates reliably & efficiently. I’m seriously sad about our gas furnace failing while I was in the middle of a blizzard. There are times when the roads are imacceptable. Icy surfaces & excessive snowfall could make it really hard for an Heating & A/C contractor to give repairs or replacement. I don’t want our family to be without heat when the outside temperature drops down to twenty below zero. I’d rather not be in a rush to have a new gas furnace installed & be forced to accept whatever size, make & model are available. I assume that sizing the gas furnace to the heat gain/loss of the home is seriously substantial to comfort & energy efficiency. There is also a significant difference in price range & AFUE ratings of the various models. The top-of-the-line heating systems utilize stretchy-speed technology to achieve efficiency ratings of 98%. These systems automatically adjust output to the decreasing demands of the home. The device can run at speeds anywhere from 40 to 100%. By running for longer cycles at a lower speed, the gas furnace maintains a really consistent indoor temperature, causes fewer concerns with overly dry air & uses less energy. Modern heating systems also offer features such as zone control & WIFI linkivity. While I’m not overly eager to spend the money on a new gas furnace, I am looking forward to trimming our utility bills & improving the comfort of our home. I’d also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a brand new heating plan that is covered under manufacturer’s warranty.
