Gas Furnace Installation and Replacement
To repair or replace—that is almost always the question with your home heating system in New Jersey.
Buying a new gas furnace can be a tough decision to make, even with all the benefits. A high-efficiency furnace will lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. It will keep you warm during those cold winter nights while adding market value to your Egg Harbor Township home.
It’s a smart investment, but one we would like to delay until necessary. Our team at Comfort Now understands. Nobody wants to spend money on appliances unless they have to. We’ll gladly provide an accurate assessment on whether you can get by a few more years with your existing furnace or if it’s time for an upgrade.
When should I buy a new furnace?
The 10-year mark is a reasonable time to start planning for a replacement. You may not need to replace it right away, but you should start preparing a budget and looking at new models.
Always try to replace your furnace and air conditioner at the same time to save money. If your furnace is older than 10 years, and you need to replace your air conditioning unit, swap them out together.
How Efficient is My Furnace?
Newer models are much more efficient, allowing you to save money on utility bills. You can purchase a new gas furnace with an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of over 95 percent. That means for every dollar you spend on heating, 95 cents is converted into energy that heats your home.
Our cold winters along the South Jersey Shore require a reliable furnace to keep our homes warm, safe, and comfortable. Be sure to schedule an appointment with Comfort Now for a free consultation and ask about our convenient financing. We make it easy for you to create a healthy home.
Are You Spending Too Much Money on Repair Bills?
Has your furnace required several repairs over the past few years? An increase in repairs often means the furnace is very close to the end of its service life.
You also want to examine the cost of the repairs. Are they minor ones or increasingly more expensive? If you must replace the heat exchanger, for example, you're better off financially replacing the furnace.
