You may be considering a furnace replacement this year to improve the air quality, comfort, and efficiency of your home. Furnace installation is a significant investment that you should consider carefully before making a decision. If you have any questions about furnace repair or installation, we have the answers you’re looking for. Furnace Doctors specializes in HVAC service. Our years of experience have given us the ability to answer some of your toughest questions. We highly five of these questions below.


1. Is a New Furnace More Efficient?

Generally speaking, a new furnace will always operate more efficiently than an old, worn-out model. Today’s furnaces, however, are designed to be more energy-efficient than their predecessors. They utilize less power to accomplish better results. New furnaces require less maintenance and repairs. In the end, you’ll spend less money on every level.


2. How Often Should My New Furnace be Inspected

We should perform routine inspection and maintenance on your furnace at least once a year. We will look at all the components, check for efficiency, calibrate the thermostat, and clean out the system where needed. We have to perform some minor AC repair for any smaller parts. You can also change the filters out once a month so that the air is flowing smoothly throughout the house.


3. Does the Size of the Unit Matter?

Manufacturers build furnaces to cool/heat houses of all sizes. Therefore, we should install a system that is perfect for your home. If the unit is too small, it will have to work twice as hard to condition the air. If it is too big, you’ll waste energy using a sizable furnace you don’t need. We can help you find a furnace that is appropriate for your home’s square footage.


4. Do Brand-Named Products Matter?

Yes and no. Certain manufacturers have reputations for building top-notch, long-lasting, quality products. You should start with the top brands and work your way down to what your budget can afford. Although we have our preferences, your real concern should be to purchase a furnace that will last and save you money by performing efficiently. We can answer any questions you have and give you a buyer’s guide.


5. Why is My Furnace Not Working?

That is a loaded question. There could be some reasons why your furnace isn’t working. Some common furnace problems include:


●        The thermostat is malfunctioning or needs to be calibrated

●        The filter is dirty and is causing the coil to freeze up

●        The entire system and ductwork is dirty and needs to be cleaned

●        The system needs coolant

●        The heat pump has gone out, so there is no warm or cool air circulating
