Our technicians at Aliso Air have years of knowledge and experience in the HVAC industry. We cover a wide variety of unit types including furnace systems. We can provide several service options to keep your unit in top running condition including maintenance and repair options. Many home owners have a furnace system that is old and not in the best condition. Our technicians are asked on a regular basis as to if they should replace a unit based on certain factors. There are factors to consider that can help you with this decision. Check out our furnace replacement checklist below!

Is your Furnace Over 13 Years Old?

To get started, consider the age of your furnace system. If your unit is older than 13 years, it is time to consider a new system. A unit that is 13 years old or more will be less energy efficient and have to work harder to operate. When the unit works harder, you pay more for the energy used. When you replace an older unit with a new system, you will spend less on your monthly utility bill and use less energy in the process. We can help you with an evaluation of your unit to determine if a new system will be beneficial.

Does Your Furnace Need Constant Repairs?

Consider the amount of time that is used to repair your unit. Are you calling us for service every year or a few times a year? If so, the system should be replaced. You will save more money in the long run by not calling for repair service on a constant basis. You will be able to invest in a new unit that will provide quality heating in the home.

Are You Staying Warm in Your Home?

Think about the warmth level of your home. Are you constantly adjusting the thermostat to bring more heat into the home? Do you feel that some rooms are colder than others? If so, you may want to consider a new install. A new unit could have new duct work installed that will offer you better heating value in the home. With a new unit, quality duct work with proper insulation as well as an energy efficient unit will provide your home with the best heating for you and your family.

How High is Your Heating Bill?

Many home owners that we assist during the winter months want to know how to lower their heating bill. Because temperatures can drop pretty low, homeowners require premium heating. The unit may run for hours on end to keep the home warm. Take a look at your heating bill. Do you feel you are spending more than you did just a few years ago? If so, it may be time to upgrade.

Consider how you could install a new unit and save on heating the home. With a new unit, you could upgrade the AFUE rating to have better value plus a higher energy efficiency rating. You will spend less on heating the home and use less energy in the process.

Consider all these factors and how they apply to your furnace system. If you find that you meet several of the criteria, you should consider a new unit install. We are happy to help you with a full inspection of your current furnace and how a new unit might be of benefit.
