What You Should Know About Choosing a Furnace
As a home or business owner, you’re probably well aware that furnace repairs and replacements are one of the more costly expenses you’ll face in terms of building maintenance. Our licensed and insured Dallas furnace repair team can help you repair and maintain your existing furnace. And, when it comes time to replace your furnace, they can discuss your options with you and assist you in choosing an energy efficient furnace to meet your needs.
Furnaces come in a number of different types, such as natural gas furnaces, electric furnaces, oil furnaces, and forced air furnaces. The one that’s right for you will depend on the space you’re heating, the way the current heating system is set up, and your budget.
Energy Efficient Furnaces Installed in Dallas Area
One aspect of purchasing a new furnace you want to be certain to question is the furnace’s efficiency. The energy efficiency of a furnace is by Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, or AFUE. Simply put, AFUE is how much fuel or electricity the furnace uses in the course of a year. In general, a more efficient unit will cost you more to purchase and install, but the year-to-year savings will eventually offset the initial cost.
Of course, if you’re in need of emergency furnace replacement and your budget is a bit stretched, our Dallas furnace repair and installation team can help you choose a quality furnace at a lesser cost to fit your immediate budget concerns.
Helping Dallas Area Residential and Commercial Clients Choosing the Best Furnace for Your Money: The Furnace Pay-Back Period
A furnace should last 20 years, so if you’re concerned about purchasing a more expensive furnace with a better efficiency rate, let us assure you that your cost will eventually be offset in energy bill savings.
Want to know how soon that will happen? Determining the cost of your prospective furnace versus the monthly energy savings can help you make a more informed purchasing decision.
Here’s how you determine a furnace’s pay back period: First, determine the difference in cost between the two furnaces you’re considering. Let’s say one heating system costs $5000 and the other costs $6000, that’s a difference of $1000. (Our Dallas furnace repair team provides FREE estimates for furnace purchases and installation.)
Next, determine the expected monthly savings for each furnace. Let’s say you’ll save $25 per month with the more expensive heating system, for a total of $300 per year. To determine the payback period, divide the $1000 difference by $300—your payback period would be a little over three years. Do the same calculation for the less expensive furnace to help you make your determination.
