Furnace Repair & Installation in De Pere
The Right Furnace for Your Home Matters
When you consider a furnace installation or replacement, it is typically because all furnaces have a limited productive lifetime. With care and good maintenance, a furnace may last well beyond its warranty, often up to 16 years, but as your furnace ages, it begins to waste a larger amount of the energy it consumes and the efficiency declines.
A 16 or 20-year-old furnace has suffered a lot of wear and tear to its parts, which you will see as an increase in your gas or electric bill. The U.S. Department of Energy says that a 20-year-old furnace wastes a minimum of 22% of the energy it consumes. The good news is that modern furnaces have an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of 95%. That means replacing your old furnace can save you a significant amount of money on energy bills over time.
What to Know About Furnace Installations
More than any other aspect of your HVAC system, the furnace needs to be matched to the structure of your home and the needs of your family. In the cold climate of Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin, forced air heating is generally preferred over steam and hot water systems. Some of the most essential system options will be based on temperature control.
The list below represents the best options for even, comfortable heating through the day.
- A modulated burner has a minimum and maximum heating capacity but will be able to operate at any point within this range and eliminate significant temperature changes that one or two burner furnaces may produce.
- Variable speed blowers create a flexible response to temperature conditions.
- AFUE-rated furnaces above 90% (a fuel efficiency measurement) uses condensing technology to boost the energy needed to boost your home.
