Is the repair or replace question lingering? Are you wondering if you should get your current furnace repaired and wait until next year for furnace replacement? It’s a question we frequently encounter because it’s hard to weigh the factors and consider the unknowns. In most cases, comparing repair costs from year to year, factoring in energy usage, considering the furnace’s age, and noting whether it is providing the comfort you expect can result in an informed decision. If you’ve had us do your furnace maintenance, we’ll have records of the inspection that may reveal anticipated future repairs or notes about its condition that could help.
BTU, AFUE, SEER, and Other Factors to Consider
While you’re considering the two-stage burners, two-speed, variable, and modulated fans, and other innovations, you’ll also want to know about how well the new furnace will heat your home, and how efficiently it will use the fuel it consumes as it does its job. BTU ratings can be used to roughly size the unit for your home, usually in the 80,000 to 100,000 range, while SEER and AFUE ratings relate to efficiency. SEER is typically used for cooling, which can include heat pumps. AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is more furnace-related and while older furnaces with low efficiency used to have effective ratings of 50-70%, now government requirements in most cases place new units above that range. There are even units with 96% efficiency or more, and when heat pumps are working, they use much less electricity than their heat output suggests, so their efficiency is actually greater than 100%, often 300% or more. High-efficiency furnaces tend to have sealed burner equipment and special heat exchangers, but it’s worth noting that multi-stage burners and variable speed fans are alternate ways to achieve high-efficiency results.
