Furnace Replacement & Installation Service

Helping You Choose Your Home’s Best Option

When you’re considering your options for your failing furnace, there are a few questions you’ll want to ask before deciding on replacement. If you’re on the fence, let Aire Serv® help you decide. Because we are both a heater repair and replacement company, we can give you the best advice and most accurate estimates when it comes to the benefits of repair vs. replacement.

To Replace or Repair—That Is the Question

Replacement is always going to be costly, both in terms of labour and the unit. However, there are quantifiable pros and cons to each option that allow you to make a clear and informed decision. In many cases, homeowners are better off making a more costly investment in the short run in order to save money long term.

Before making your decision, consider these factors:

  • Inspect your air filter, Check out your air filters once a month. Dirty filters always need to be cleaned or replaced. Clogged filters can overstress your system, leading to more costly damage down the road (as well as a less efficient system).

  • Keep it clean. Do your best to keep the individual parts of your AC unit clean and tidy. Using a shop vac to clear away dirt and other debris in your unit and ducts is a fairly quick and easy way to do this. Wipe things down when you can, and make this a regular practice.

  • Give the unit some breathing room. Your unit should have a lot of clearance around it, especially for outdoor units. Brush away dirt or mud, prune branches and bushes, and in general just keep the area clear. It makes your yard look attractive and protects your unit from contaminants.

The Varieties of Furnaces & Heating Systems

Furnaces are a popular and effective form of heating. Here are some of the strengths and benefits of each:

  • Gas furnaces — Low operational cost.
  • Electric furnaces — Can be connected to solar power. Has a lower initial cost.
  • Oil furnaces — Good choice in areas where oil is more plentiful than gas.

There are other forms of heating available as well, including:

  • Heat pumps — Serve dual purpose; can pump both cold and warm air seasonally.
  • Boilers — Acts as a water heater for radiant heating.

It’s important to keep in mind that if you’re replacing both your cooling and heating system (or if you anticipate replacement within a year or two of each other) it might make sense to invest more heavily in your heating than your cooling. That, or choose a solid heat pump so you can have a system that meets your needs in one unit. Aire Serv® can help you consider factors such as geographic location and your existing system’s current lifespan in helping you choose replacement or repair.

Why Buy an Energy-Efficient Model?

The benefits of energy-saving models are fairly numerous, with effects that appear in only a few months of use. Unlike other industries, furnaces are no less effective when they are energy-efficient—quite the opposite, actually. The features that make a heating system good for the environment also make it work better for your home. Utilizing an energy efficient gas model will make a significant and immediate impact on your heating bill as well.

Even more significantly, your model will have a better effect on the environment. Heating is one of the few industries where the more you invest in your comfort, the better your usage will be for the environment. Consider investing in a top-of-the-line model—it will save you considerably more in the long run, allow you to stay warm for less money and resources, and reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
