Having the residential furnace replaced in your Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, North Liberty, Coralville, and Anamosa area home is a major undertaking.

Also, you may not realize how many different options there actually are when it comes to choosing a furnace replacement.
So if you’re not sure how to go about starting to select a new furnace to replace the one you have, let the experts here at Affordable Heating and Cooling help you out. We have professionally trained installers and technicians who can help you make an informed decision about what systems would be most appropriate for your particular situation. With some professional advice and guidance, choosing a great residential furnace replacement doesn’t have to be nearly as overwhelming as you might think.
Of course, before you can go about selecting a replacement for your current furnace, you need to have made the decision that it’s time to replace it. So when is it time to replace the home furnace that you have now? There are actually quite a few circumstances in which you should seriously consider investing in a replacement.
Residential Furnace Upgrade for Energy Efficiency
I have several rental properties and do an occasional flipper house. I started doing business with Affordable because the owner was a coworker of my brother’s and he recommended him. I believe I have purchased six furnaces from them. They are always prompt on service calls and when I need a new furnace, the deal has always seemed good. I used to get bids on furnaces, but don’t even bother with that anymore.
One of the main reasons a lot of people choose to replace their older furnace is that the newer models are much more energy efficient. A furnace you purchase now will have an AFUE rating of at least 80% and can be as high as 90% or more. This is well above the AFUE ratings of many models installed even 10 years ago. The difference that added efficiency can make on your monthly energy bills is really quite astonishing.
In fact, that added energy savings alone will quickly make up for the cost of purchase and installation. Also, if you have an older system now, chances are you’re going to have to replace it soon anyway. So why not start saving on your energy bills now rather than waiting until your current unit breaks and you’re forced to replace it?
Continual Need for Furnace Repairs
Another good reason to consider a residential furnace replacement is if your current system is constantly requiring repairs to stay in good working order. While these repairs may be minor and not too expensive, they’re going to add up fast and it makes more sense to invest in a new system rather than continuing to pay to fix your current one.
Also, a system that is in need of frequent repairs is probably not going to last you much longer anyway. Nor is it likely to be very energy efficient. For all of these reasons, investing in a furnace replacement now makes more economic sense and it will also let you relax and enjoy the warmth rather than having to worry about when your furnace is going to break again.
