There comes a point when your old furnace has had enough. You can’t afford to keep it as is, and you can’t afford to repair it. While many home or business owners cringe at the thought of purchasing a new furnace, installing a brand new system is actually an investment that can save you hundreds of dollars from the moment you implement it into your building.
How Much is Your Old Furnace Costing You?
Before we get into savings, let’s talk about cost. An older furnace 12 to 20-years-old is roughly 80% efficient. What this means is that every time you turn it on, you’re only getting about 80% of its full capacity. And, yet, most home or business owners still expect the old equipment to perform the same as it always has. What is the result?
● Higher energy bills
● Additional scheduled maintenance
● Higher repair costs.
● Unhealthy air, which can lead to additional air filtration costs
● Hazardous conditions throughout the home or office
The Solution: A Brand New Energy-Efficient Furnace
But does a new furnace, solve these issues? More importantly, does it save Minnesota homeowners money in the long run? The answer is yes. In fact, a modern furnace system will not only save you money, but, also, improve your home’s market value. Let’s consider the following:
Energy-Efficiency. At the top of the list is how much money you’ll be forking over in energy bills each month. A new furnace can save you 30%-50% annually and reduce your bill over the next 10-15 years.
Repairs. With proper maintenance, your new unit is expected to last up to 20 years. Modern furnaces require far fewer repairs or part replacements than their older counterparts. That’s money you can pocket and use somewhere else.
Preventative Maintenance. Like anything else, the heating and cooling equipment will need routine maintenance. Newer systems, however, cost far less to take care of when taken care of on a routine basis. Contact your local Furnace Doctor technician to find out how often your system needs to be maintained.
Improved Home Market Value. In 2017, installing a new furnace has the power to boost your home’s value by as much as 15%. The depends on the size of your home, the floorplan, and the size of the equipment that you purchase.
