When the winter weather strikes, you need an efficient heating system that is ready to fight off the cold. There’s nothing worse—or more inconvenient—than struggling to stay warm on the coldest night of the year when your furnace decides to go kaput. If you are looking for expert furnace installation in the Ottawa area, rely on one of the hardest-working HVAC companies in the area: C.I.G. Heating & Air Conditioning.
If your furnace is 15 or more years old, replacing it with a new model will likely increase your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. Furnace manufacturers are continually advancing technologies and improving controls and operations to make their furnaces better—which means that a brand-new furnace is exponentially more efficient and better-performing than those installed even 10 years ago.
Have your heating bills spiked recently? Are they much higher than they were this time last year? Older furnaces can lose efficiency as they age.
If you have to continually turn up your thermostat to get warm, you should have your furnace looked at. It may need repair, but it may be smarter to replace it. Your CIG technician can help you make that decision!
Needing professional repair every now and then is nothing odd, but if you find yourself calling in the experts every few months, yearly, or even every two years, you’re paying out a lot more than you’re getting back. A single repair may cost less than a replacement, but it’s a much different story after two, three, or more repairs!
Above all else, a furnace system must be reliable. Dealing with a malfunctioning furnace in the dead of winter is simply not an option, and it is a situation we never want to see you in! Replacing your old system with a modern furnace means reliable service from a perfectly tuned system that is being installed to meet your specific needs.
In addition to saving you money on your energy bills, replacing your old furnace with a brand-new system can have several other benefits.
- Less pollution. New furnaces use less fuel and use it more efficiently. When you compare the AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of your current furnace with a new one, you’ll be amazed at how efficient the new models are. The higher the AFUE, the higher percentage of fuel is converted to heat, resulting in lower energy bills and less fuel waste.
- Increased comfort. With advancements in technology and production, today’s furnaces produce heat far more evenly and steadily than those of the past. Those cold spots you avoid in your home can become cozy again!
- Opportunity to resize. Often, a home’s furnace is too large or too small for the home it’s installed in. A furnace that’s too large will cycle on and off too often, causing increased wear and tear on the system. A furnace that’s too small won’t be able to heat your home effectively. So when you have a new furnace installed, you can get a unit that is exactly the right size to heat your home perfectly.
