Is a larger capacity furnace better?
We recommend that you install a new furnace during the warmer months. However, your heating system may not cooperate. You should replace the heating system whenever a trusted technician recommends a replacement, no matter what time of year it is.
When should you replace your furnace?
A standard-efficiency furnace, on average, will last 15 to 18 years (assuming that it is properly maintained). A high-efficiency furnace, on average, will last 12 to 14 years. If your house is over ten years old, you should start monitoring the furnace and how it is operating closely.
How can I lower my utility bills?
One easy initial step is to reduce your use of appliances, lights, etc. Having a programmable thermostat will allow you to make sure your furnace is set at a lower temperature when you are away from home and at night to reduce the amount of energy you use to maintain the temperature. Compared to a mid-efficiency or standard furnace, a high-efficiency furnace saves more money. Today’s high-efficiency furnaces are as much as 97% efficient (in contrast to older standard furnaces that are just 55% efficient).
What is the ENERGY STAR logo?
When you see the logo on HVAC equipment, that means the unit has a higher energy efficiency versus the federal minimum standards. Suppose you invest in an ENERGY STAR system. In that case, some of the benefits that you can enjoy include reducing air pollution, saving money on your utility bills and using energy more efficiently without having to sacrifice the unit’s style, versatility, or features.
How to ensure my heating system runs at peak performance?
When a unit runs efficiently, that can help to save money on your energy bills. You can try the following tips to help ensure your furnace operates at the most efficient level possible:

What are the most important advantages offered by programmable thermostats?
Various programmable thermostats provide different features. However, since they are electronic, they are more efficient and accurate than thermostats containing mercury. A programmable thermostat allows you to control your home’s temperature at various times throughout the day without having to touch the thermostat. Since everything is automated, you won’t need to remember to change the setting.
