Furnace Repair to Retrofit Older Models and the Advanced Features in New Models
Frigid temperatures with no way to get out of a home can make the atmosphere miserable and inhabitable. The extreme weather seen in recent years has made it harder for older furnaces to keep up with the demands. Equipment made in the last ten years is designed with most efficiently running parts yet. The efficiency of Heating and Cooling appliances is read by seasonal energy efficiency ratio. This rating is compared in a similar way to miles per gallon in a car. It shows the quantification of energy it uses to reach the operational standards. The more it can heat or cool the air per unit of energy, the more efficiently it runs. All systems must meet a marked standard for efficiency. Outdated systems may not meet the standard at all.
Furnace Repair or new installation for poorly performing older systems is critical to regulating energy costs and the negative impact it has on the environment. Many old models can have their components upgraded to achieve the same results as a new system. When this option is available, consumers save money to make the same intended improvements as new furnaces. A Furnace Repair technician must carefully inspect equipment first. Their findings tell if the performance level can be improved enough to make retrofitting a viable option. If so, the appropriate parts are installed to replace the low performing components.
Newly installed furnaces come with an array of features that suite user preferences. Most brands meet the Energy Star approval ratings. This means the equipment runs by high efficiency standards and doesn’t take too much from the environment. The materials are constructed of sturdy rust resistant steel. The line of products run quietly with some having digital controls that automatically configure. Some systems have advanced features that precisely aligns to the heating requirements of the user. For the spaces that need furnaces to fit a certain way, there are models that can be installed in different positions. Horizontal or vertical installation makes for a furnace that orients to the specifications of the space it’s put in. Contact Bowen Refrigeration, Heating & Cooling to schedule service.
