Contact MSCO Heating & Cooling for High Quality Furnace Replacement
Having a furnace that provides warmth and comfort and gets your family safely through a Virginia winter is an absolute necessity. If you’re constantly dealing with furnace-related problems, and your furnace is getting on up in years, it may be time to seriously consider placing it with a new furnace from Mechanical Service Company.
Signs of Trouble and the Need for Furnace Replacement
Properly maintained, and depending on the make and model and type of furnace you have, your furnace potentially can serve you adequately for 20 to 30 years. No matter how well it’s maintained, however, like any piece of equipment it will eventually wear out and need to be replaced.
Signs of the possible need for a new furnace include the following.
High Winter Utility Bills
If your current furnace is two decades old or older, it will not be as energy efficient as today’s newer furnaces. And that lack of efficiency translates into higher and higher utility bills every winter.
As an example, today’s gas furnaces are between 80 to 98% energy efficient, depending on whether you install a standard, mid-efficiency furnace or a high-efficiency condensing furnace. Either way, replacing your old furnace with one of these new units can potentially reduce your winter utility costs by up to 50%.
In addition, you need to remember that having an old furnace may only be part of your heating problem. Old ductwork, an old blower, and other aging HVAC components may not meet today’s standards and possibly should be replaced.
One of our expert technicians from MSCO can provide advice on these parts of your system and help you decide if other components also need to be replaced.
Frequent, Costly Repairs
To put a fine point on things, if your furnace is frequently breaking down on you and you’re calling for maintenance and repairs every winter, you’re really wasting your hard earned money. That old system is eventually going to fail completely on you, and rather than continuing to sink money into it, it’s much better to replace it with a modern high-efficiency unit that will warm your home for many winters to come.
If your furnace is running more or less constantly, yet your home feels drafty and uncomfortable, and temperatures vary from room to room, those are all signs your old furnace is struggling and probably needs to be replaced.
A Variety of Choices
If you decide on furnace replacement, you have a wide range of HVAC systems from which to choose, and some of the more popular options include the following.
Natural Gas Furnace
Natural gas is a cleaning burning fuel, and these furnaces are better for the environment than some other types of furnaces. Natural gas furnaces are convenient and easy to use and require no refueling during the course of the winter.
These furnaces produce no carbon dioxide and are easy to maintain. They’re durable and serviceable for many years to come and often cost less than a gas furnace
Heat pump systems are increasingly popular with homeowners because of the “double duty” they provide. Through the transfer of heat, either into or out of your home, depending on the season, a heat pump will warm your home in winter and cool it during the course of a Virginia summer.
We also offer ductless mini-split systems that are an excellent option for older homes that don’t have a system of ductwork. Heating and cooling are provided through wall-mounted units, and temperatures can easily be varied from room to room, if desired.
And the Benefits …
Whatever your choice in furnaces, there are any number of benefits you can expect from the installation of a new system from MSCO. These include:
- Greater efficiency and lower utility bills
- Fewer repair bills
- Improved air quality in your home
- Possible tax rebates from the federal, state, or local governments
