How Long does a furnace last?
Gas Furnaces in our Northern Virgina Climate can last from 12-18 years. They can usually outlast a Air Conditioner, but not a good practice to change only half of the system unless its purly for financial reasons. You will pay about 30% more for a contractor to come back in a year or two to replace the air conditioner.
As your furnace ages, it can lose efficiency or stop working altogether. At Service Works LLC, we provide the highest level of quality in all our service installations, and all jobs are performed by highly-experienced contractors you can trust. Replacing your gas furnace is not as simple as just buying a new furnace. There are few of things to consider as well as matching the needs of your home. You can upgrade the efficiency of your gas furnace at the time of replacement. Maybe the existing gas furnace never really met the heating demand of your home. We can perform a heat loss calculation or manual J to see if the existing furnace is sized appropriately. When your furnace was originally installed a heat loss calculation was probably done. When replacing the furnace what needs to be asked is - has anything changed that would require a change in furnace size? New windows, insulation, additions all will change your heat loss and gains.
Improving the efficiency
The biggest efficiency improvement that can be made is upgrading to a 90+ furnace - our Carrier Infinity 98 Furnace has a 98% flue efficiency. What this means is 98 cents on the dollar is spent to heat your home and 2% is wasted energy. Furnaces pre-1985 are generally 65-79% efficient. So upgrading to our Carrier Infinity 98 Gas furnace is a huge jump. Besides combustion efficiency, heat staging is the second upgrade we would recommend. The Carrier Infinity 98 gas Furnace has 60 stages of heat. Why is this so important? Your homes heating system is designed to support your indoor comfort on the hottest and coldest days of the year. Its not always 15 degrees outside. Our Infinity 98 furnace will start at 40% of its full capacity and increase in 1% increments till the load is met. This means you only use what fuel is necessary to heat your home further preventing waste. Not to mention the improved comfort. Another efficiency improvement to your furnace would be variable speed fan. This increases the furnace efficiency as well as the Air Conditioner.
Choosing the right Contractor
One of the easiest ways to improve your HVAC systems efficiency is to pick the right installing contractor. North Carolina Alternative Energy found that 90% of installations in the United States had some type of energy robbing problem that should have been addressed at installation or was caused by improper installation. Wow that means 9 out of 10 systems are installed improperly!
