Are you considering upgrading to a new propane furnace ahead of the coming winter?
If your furnace is 10 years old or older, you should. The older your furnace gets, the less efficient it becomes, driving up your energy costs. And you could be facing more, and more expensive, repairs.
You have a lot of things to take into consideration as you make your purchase and have your new propane furnace installed. We’ve put together four important things to think about.
Furnaces come in many sizes. You need to make sure that the furnace you purchase has the will be able to meet your home’s heating needs. One that is too big or too small when it comes to your home’s heating load will affect its efficiency and could drive up your energy costs. Make sure any estimates you get compare furnaces with similar Btu output.
You can significantly reduce the cost of your new furnace by taking advantage of manufacturer’s specials or incentives and rebates from the Oklahoma Propane Gas Association. Pitmon’s equipment professionals will make sure that you get any special deals or rebates your new furnace qualifies you for.
Will ductwork installation, repair, or replacement be a part of installing your new furnace? Costs like those must be factored in when you get an estimate. Not only does the scope of the installation work affect how long the project could take, but it also affects when you schedule it. If you are adding special features such as zoned heating or indoor air quality equipment like a whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier, or air cleaning or filtration, that also impacts the scope of work and the duration of the project.
Furnace installation isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Your equipment installation professionals need to take many things into consideration beforehand. These questions need to be addressed before installation is scheduled.
Propane is the best choice for heating your home. It is much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than electricity, and also provides a more even, comfortable heat.
