In the not-so-distant-past, the Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning team had the pleasure of removing an old Lennox Pulse furnace from a home and replacing it with a new, high efficiency furnace. Believe it or not, the old furnace you see here is actually an example of one of the earliest high efficiency furnaces, and its burner system was designed after the old German V2 rockets.
Despite the fact that this system was considered ‘high efficiency’ in its day, today’s high efficiency units are much more efficient and a new furnace installation was definitely a great choice for this client. Remember, even if your old furnace is still running, there are many ways you can benefit from a new furnace installation and a unit that’s up-to-date with the latest energy and cost-saving system technologies.
How You Will Benefit from an Upgrade
- New Systems Have Higher Efficiencies: When you’re running a newer high efficiency furnace, it’s likely that it has an efficiency rating that’s upwards of 97%. This means that 97% of the fuel it uses is being turned into heat that’s actually heating your home. Older furnaces, on the other hand, may only have efficiency ratings of 55-70%, which means you’re burning fuel but getting a lot less heat in return. Newer high efficiency units save their owners money!
- New Systems Provide Even Heating: Whenever someone replaces an old furnace with a new one, one of the first things they notice is that their home is much more comfortable, or specifically, the heat is distributed more evenly. What’s more is that a new unit will maintain the temperature in your home better
than an older unit, saving you money in the long-run.
- New Systems are Quieter: Have you ever been to someone’s house, heard the furnace switch on and it sounded like a rocket was warming up in the basement? Chances are it was an older model furnace. Cost-savings aside, one of the benefits of a new unit is that they run much more quietly.
These are just a few of the many ways you can benefit from upgrading your furnace, because let’s face it, when your home is being heated by an old furnace, it’s only a matter of time before that system fails or requires potentially costly repairs.
