Having to buy a new furnace is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make as a homeowner. And usually, you only do so because you’re having problems with your current system. It has a big price tag, yes, but can it actually save you money in the long run? S&R Heating & Cooling is here to break down the answer.

How Exactly Can a Furnace Upgrade Save You Money?

Better Energy Efficiency

Today’s furnaces are built to be more energy-efficient than ever. From variable-speed models that help relieve stress on the system to higher AFUE standards (which refers to the amount of fuel used by your furnace), newer units are designed with lower utility bills in mind. And those lower energy bills can even help pay for the system over time.

Plus, older systems tend to lose efficiency as they age. So by simply swapping your old unit for a new one, you’re automatically upgrading its efficiency, even before you factor in AFUE ratings.

Fewer Repair Bills

Chances are, you’re buying a new furnace because a repair to your old one is either too expensive or too unsafe to make. With a brand-new system, you don’t have to worry about it breaking down on you. Once it’s installed, you can kick back and relax knowing it will work exactly how it’s supposed to. And, when you schedule routine maintenance, you can ensure that replacement will provide worry-free heating for years—and even decades—to come.

Having the Right-Size System

When you think about a furnace, you don’t always think about how big they are. Or, you might think that the bigger the system, the warmer your house will be.

Having the right-size furnace is actually invaluable to both your comfort and your wallet. A unit that’s too small will run constantly trying to keep up with your needs, which in turn will waste a lot of energy. And a system that’s too big will cycle improperly because it’s made for bigger homes. That can put unnecessary stress on your new furnace, causing more problems and breakdowns.

That’s where S&R Heating comes in—more on that below.

A Professional Installation

Having a nice, new, energy-efficient furnace replacement can make a huge difference. But that’s only half the equation—the other half is the installation.
