When Should I Have My Furnace Replaced?
Saying you should have your furnace replaced every 15 or 20 years doesn’t paint the clearest picture of the situation.
It’s true, a properly installed heating system can last for up to 20 years, but you have to take care of it during that time.
Sometimes, as a furnace gets older the repairs start to add up and the cost of repairs doesn’t justify keeping the old system around.
There may also be newer, more energy efficient furnaces available that will save money when compared to the older one. The key is to align yourself with a trusted
heating expert and then follow their advice on when the best time is to replace your old furnace with a new one.
Littleton furnace replacement proper sizing
Your home comfort system is most likely the single biggest use of energy in your home. In fact, over a third of the energy used in the United States is used to heat and cool buildings.
Having a properly designed and installed heating and air conditioning system will have the biggest impact on your energy costs.
Using manual J to properly size your furnace
Furnace and air conditioner size is based on Manual J - "Winter Heat Loss and Summer Heat Gain".
Heat gain means during the summer the heat comes into your home thus it's called a gain.
During the winter the heat inside your home transfers to the outside thus it's referred to as heat loss.
Think about it. Heat always transfers to a colder area, Heat gain for the summer.
Every home should have a calculation done and in accordance with Manual "J" and in accordance with ACCA'S (Air Conditioning Contractor's Association) standards.
To be eligible for utility and goverment rebates, and incentives will require this to be done.
Furnace or air conditioner size, (BTU requirement), is based on the type of construction of your home.
The insulation it has or will have in the walls or attic, whether the attic is ventilated, The windows single-double-triple pane plus there type,
The infiltration of air through your doors, windows, receptacles, ductwork, in general is the home getting above average of infiltration, and how hot or cold it gets in your area.
All these things add up to the size of heating and air conditioning unit you must have to maintain your comfort.
What to expect when purchasing a replacement furnace
A new replacement furnace will operate and perform quite differently than older design furnaces. In order to gain efficiency heat exchanger designs and air flow movement around them had to change substantially.
With the new designs some of the things you may notice are lower air temperatures at the supply registers, more air noise at supply registers and return air grills, longer run cycles, lower utility costs and
New furnaces are broken down into two basic categories - 80% efficient and 90%+ high efficient.
The main differences between the two are 90%+ efficient furnaces are condensing furnaces via a secondary heat exchanger. In the secondary heat exchanger flue gasses are condensed and the
residual heat in the condensate is extracted and applied to the air moving across the heat exchanger causing improved efficiency. The difference in design and operation can take efficiencies up to 98%.
These furnaces also require special venting systems and be installed in a location where condensate removal can be achieved and protection from freezing can be achieved.
80% efficient replacement furnaces can generally vent into your existing venting system and require less maintenance than the 90%+ furnaces.
With either furnace the smaller heat exchanger design requires more air flow to prevent over heating than the older design furnaces, so they can produce more air flow noise and lower outlet temperatures,
but the lower outlet temperatures can provide longer run cycles which in turn provide better air stratification throughout the home and create more comfort and even temperatures.
Multi-stage or variable capacity replacement furnaces take run cycle time, even temperatures and comfort to another level when operating at reduced BTU capacities which in turn reduces operating costs even further.
Add variable speed blower motors which are electronically efficient to the mix, they can elevate the indoor comfort even more and also help provide better indoor air quality with continuous fan operation
at reduced cfm rates when installed in conjunction high efficiency media filters.
No matter which replacement furnace you decide on when compared to older design furnaces you will get more efficient operation and better comfort, so you really can’t go wrong with any choice.
