Even though it’s the middle of June and the temperatures have been in the 70s and 80s, people in Crystal Lake know that summer weather won’t last forever. Fall will return, and with it, cooler temperatures. At Absolute Comfort, we know that you want your furnace to work perfectly all fall and winter long, but if you had problems with your heating system last year, then it might be time to upgrade to a new model.
As your heating and cooling experts, we can help you choose the right furnace for your home. We can also take care of installing the new system and making sure it’s ready to go for the colder months of the year.
How Old Is Your Home?
When thinking about installing a new furnace in the near future, it’s important to consider how old your home is. Perhaps the ductwork was installed a long time ago, or maybe the windows haven’t been updated in 30 years. The state of your ductwork, windows, and other factors can play a part in how effective and efficient your new furnace will be. Leaky ducts can cause warm air to escape within the walls of your home, and old windows can let warm air out and cold air in during the summer.
Updating your windows and ductwork can seem costly, but it can make a big difference when it comes to heating efficiency in the winter. Yes, you’re installing a new furnace, but that new furnace will have a better chance to run at optimal capacity if it’s able to heat your home to the fullest extent and keep the house at the desired temperature.
Keeping Heating Costs Reasonable
The last fall and winter you spent in your home might have been uncomfortable due to an inefficient heating system. You did everything you could to keep warm, but you didn’t want to push up the electric bill by plugging in space heaters or using other heat sources, especially since your heating bill was already higher due to an inefficient furnace. Depending on what fuel source your furnace uses — electricity, gas, or oil — you’re going to pay more during the fall and winter to keep the heat running.
With a new furnace, the initial cost may seem like a lot, but when you think about what you can save on monthly heating bills, the new system can more than pay for itself. With more efficient heat, you won’t have to run the furnace as long or use nearly as much fuel as you have in years past.
