It’s tempting to run a furnace until it’s no longer able to do so, but the reduction in performance often means increased utility costs and less comfort. If the furnace in your Crestwood, MO, home wasn’t installed in the past decade, it might be time for a newer model. In this article, we discuss a few of the benefits of upgrading your furnace.
Lower Heating Bills
New furnaces have new technological advancements that allow them to use less energy to heat the same space. This is both better for the environment and your wallet. Less energy used means smaller energy costs and fewer resources consumed.
More Comfortable Environment
You probably won’t notice the full extent of your old furnace’s inefficiency until a new unit gets installed. Your home will heat up quicker and maintain heat better than before.
No More Pilot Lights
Older furnaces have a small pilot light that’s always lit, consuming small amounts of natural gas at all times of day and night. New models use electronic igniters, only using energy when you actually want the furnace to be running.
More Settings and Features
Just like with new releases of vehicle models, there are more features included with newer furnaces than old ones. They’ll be compatible with smart thermostats that allow you to control your home’s temperature via an app on your smartphone. Other features are more hidden but just as valuable, like variable speed air handlers that create a higher level of energy efficiency.
