5 Tips When Buying a New Furnace For Your Home

5 Tips When Buying a New Furnace For Your Home
Buying a new furnace can be very overwhelming. Besides the fact that it’s hard to install, investing in new equipment is also expensive—and it can take a toll on your budget when you pick the wrong system. Armor Heating & Air will give you these five (5) furnace buying tips, so your investment won’t go to waste. Check them out below.

Assess the Age of Your Furnace First

It would be wise to evaluate your furnace’s age before spending money on a new one. To know how old your system is, turn it off and remove the covering on its exterior.  From there, you’ll see either a serial number or manufacturer date. Take a look at the serial numbers’ first four digits. The third and fourth number stands for the year the system is made, and the second one is the week of that manufactured year. If you are quite unsure about this, then asking for professional assistance would be better.

Determine the Type of Fuel Source Needed

Furnaces use either gas or oil fuel to run. Choosing the system that uses the right fuel type is essential when it comes to energy-saving matters. Weigh your options and determine the pros and cons of each. If you’re unsure which one to choose, contact your trusted local heating contractor for expert assistance.

Consider a Zoning System

Consider investing in a zoning system when your multi-level home’s temperature tends to fluctuate, or your family members always argue with the right temperature setting. Make the most out of your new furnace’s performance with a zoning system. With zoned heating, you can freely set different temperatures in each area and enjoy quality comfort throughout the winter.

Consider Investing In a New Thermostat

If you’re still using a traditional thermostat, then it is worth considering an upgrade. Investing in a programmable or smart thermostat can optimize your system’s efficiency. Plus, you can get multiple benefits, including better system performance, convenient temperature setting, lower heating costs, and improved comfort.
