What to look for in a new furnace?
Furnaces come in a variety of sizes and efficiencies. The right one for your home will depend on what type of chimney you have and whether you can upgrade to a super high condensing furnace vented with pvc pipe. These furnaces can get up to 96% or more efficiency which means you only lose 4 percent or less of heat out your vent. Older furnaces can be as inefficient at 60% efficency with 40% going out the chimney.
A furnace with a pilot light is very old technology and should be replaced ASAP. The newer furnaces are self igniting and do not need a wasteful pilot light.
Proper installation is key to providing an efficient longer lasting furnace. Furnaces that are dependable with a warranty to back it up are the best ones to choose.
Many companies building high efficiency models offer a limited lifetime warranty on their heat exchangers. We make sure the new furnace is registered online with the manufacture to ensure a 10 year warranty on all other parts. Give us a call at 859-333-5191 for a FREE FURNACE INSTALLATION PRICE QUOTE.
