Want answers to your most pressing questions about your home’s furnace or heating fuel? You have come to the right place. Learn more about your home’s furnace and your heating options in Southern Maryland.
The type of furnace you need in your Southern Maryland home depends on a variety of factors. The type of fuel source you currently use, and whether you would like to switch to a different option, influence the type of furnace that will work in your home. The size of your home also plays a role in determining what kind of furnace is most appropriate. An energy consultant from SMO Energy can visit your home, discuss your needs and help you choose the best furnace for you.
In some cases, it might be worthwhile to replace your furnace even if it seems to be fine. If you replace a furnace that is more than 10 years old with a newer model, you are likely to enjoy a more efficient system as well as lower heating bills.
Another thing worth noting is that you might not need to replace a furnace that is cycling on and off, making loud noises, producing excess dust or heating unevenly. In some circumstances, your furnace can be repaired, rather than replaced. Preventative maintenance can also help to extend the life of your furnace, allowing it to work efficiently for longer.
Your furnace plays a significant role in keeping your home comfortable, but it is not the only player involved in your home’s heating and comfort levels. If your home is not as warm as you would like it to be and you are considering replacing your furnace, you might also want to have a certified technician examine your home’s ductwork.
In some cases, a considerable amount of energy escapes through the ducts, meaning the warm air never gets to the room it is intended to heat. Re-insulating and sealing your home’s ducts can help your new furnace warm your home more effectively.
It is also worthwhile to weigh the pros and cons of repairing your furnace versus replacing it. If your furnace is less than 10 years old and has been well-maintained throughout its life, it might be more cost-effective for you to repair it rather than replace it.
