DO YOU HAVE THE OLDEST FURNACE IN OUR AREA*?
As your area heating and air experts, we feel that we have a responsibility to raise awareness of the potentially harmful side effects of having an old furnace in your home.
Older furnaces that don’t comply with current, standard safety codes can contribute to excess gas emissions in your home, which may cause you or your family to become sick. They are also at a higher risk for faulty parts, potentially resulting in house fires as well as frequent and costly repairs.
The inefficiency of older furnaces hurts the environment, and your wallet. Upgrading your furnace or boiler from 56% to 90% efficiency in an average cold-climate house will save 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year if you heat with gas, or 2.5 tons if you heat with oil. And depending on the age and efficiency rating of your furnace, a potentially large amount of savings can be realized monthly when you upgrade.
Any furnace more than 10 years old is a ripe candidate for replacement. The average life expectancy of a gas furnace is 12 years depending on the brand and maintenance performed over the life of the unit. As mechanical equipment ages, its performance degrades and becomes less efficient.
