This question can only be asked if we actually see what kind of furnace you have (boiler or forced air). Some older boilers can be just as efficient as new ones, it all depends on how well they’ve been maintained. For the purposes of this article we will be focusing on the forced air furnace.
Although this has been a mild winter so far in NY and your furnace hasn’t been going on as much as it may have in previous winters it’s important to consider if your furnace need to be upgraded or if you could benefit financially from upgrading to a new one. Here are some important factors to consider:
- have you already insulated your attic? this is the first step to saving on your energy bill
- seal all air leaks in exterior walls and ceilings.
- leaky windows should be sealed or replaced
Once you see where your energy bill is after these 3 improvements it’s time to consider a new furnace. Carl, the owner of Northern Comfort Heating and Cooling will look at your energy bill and tell you how much savings you can expect with a new furnace and when it will pay for itself.
