Replacing Your Furnace & Heating System in the Coachella Valley
It’s a big investment and a big decision, so how do you know when it’s time to replace your furnace? At Hyde’s Heating and Air Conditioning we not only provide quality HVAC products and expert installations to our Coachella Valley customers, we also offer valuable insight to help you make the right purchase decision at the right time for you.
Here are five important factors to consider when you are contemplating a furnace replacement:
Age – How old is your existing furnace?
If you take good care of your furnace with annual ac and heating maintenance then it can last anywhere from 15-20 years. However, once your furnace is 10 years old it is time to start monitoring its performance and creating your furnace replacement plan.
Energy Efficiency – What’s your current furnace’s AFUE rating?
Today’s furnaces are more energy efficient than ever with a minimum requirement of 78 AFUE, and AFUE ratings as high as the upper 90’s available in some models. While it costs money upfront to purchase a new furnace, if you are paying high monthly fuel bills due to an inefficient heating system then a new energy efficient furnace will help you recoup that money over time. We can also offer HVAC financing options.
Reliability – How often you need furnace repairs?
While Hyde’s will happily repair all ages and conditions of furnaces for our Coachella Valley area customers, we know that repairs can be inconvenient and replacing major parts can be expensive. If your furnace is becoming increasingly unreliable then it may be time to replace it.
Age of Air Conditioner – Will you be replacing your air conditioner or heating system soon?
Your furnace and AC share some internal parts, such as the air handler. It’s not a good idea to match a new furnace with older shared AC parts because the new furnace won’t be able to operate at the best of its abilities. Consider the age of your HVAC system when deciding to replace your furnace.
Comfort – How comfortable is your home when the weather gets cold?
If you have cool spots in your home due to uneven heat distribution, or if your furnace just doesn’t seem to be able to keep your home warm enough, then it’s time to consider a new furnace.
Hyde’s will come to your home and evaluate your current system and situation, provide a free quote for a furnace replacement, and even let you know about time sensitive rebates and tax credits that may influence your purchase decision. Consider Hyde’s as your resource for products, service and important information regarding your furnace replacement decision.
