New Furnace Installation & Replacement
We provide installation and replacement of gas heating systems in Wilson. A gas furnace will typically last about 20 years. Newer furnaces are much more energy efficient than 15- or 20-year-old models. This increase in efficiency can help offset the cost of replacing the old furnace. There are some signs that it may be time to replace your furnace.
Consider getting a new furnace when:
- Your old one is more than 15 years old
- Some rooms are warmer or colder than others
- Frequent breakdowns
- The pilot light is yellow instead of blue
- Energy bills are increasing
- The furnace is making popping, rattling, or screeching noises
When comparing gas furnaces, the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, or AFUE, number informs you of the percentage of fuel used and how much is wasted. For example, a furnace with an AFUE of 90% tells you that 90% of the heat generated is used in the home, while the other 10% is wasted. A higher number indicates better energy efficiency, so a furnace with an AFUE of 80% is less energy efficient than a 90% AFUE number. We can help you compare your options to find a furnace that meets your energy efficiency preferences and fits your budget.
Prevent Gas Heater Emergencies with Regular Maintenance
Preventing gas heater emergencies through regular maintenance is paramount to ensure both safety and optimal performance. Start by scheduling an annual professional inspection to assess the gas heater's components, including the burner, pilot light, and heat exchanger. Regularly clean or replace air filters to maintain efficient airflow and reduce strain on the system. Check for any gas leaks by inspecting connections and ensuring fittings are secure.
It's crucial to keep the area around the heater clear of debris and ensure proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. Additionally, homeowners should familiarize themselves with the manufacturer's guidelines for maintenance tasks and promptly address any unusual smells, sounds, or performance issues. Consistent attention to gas heater maintenance not only safeguards against emergencies but also promotes energy efficiency, extending the lifespan of the system and providing a reliable source of warmth during colder periods.
