Even if your furnace is still working, now may be the time to start thinking about a new one. As heating systems get older, they tend to require more repairs, even if you’ve kept up on your maintenance. That’s a sign they won’t last for too many more winters.
And, there are more great options than ever on the market today! Even a comparable model will feel like an upgrade because today’s units are much more energy-efficient. Or, you can upgrade your comfort while lowering your energy bills with a heat pump system.
If you’re concerned about how much longer your furnace will last, want to explore your options, or need a new system right away, call Compass Heating and Air at (630) 504-8688. Or, click below to set an appointment online.
A furnace with central air (you should replace them together) costs $6,000 to $8,500 for a 45,000 BTU system with a two-ton AC. Those prices are based on 80-percent AFUE/13 SEER and 95-percent AFUE/16 SEER units, respectively.
The higher AFUE and SEER means they’re more energy-efficient. AFUE measures the efficiency of your furnace, and SEER measures cooling efficiency. Those combinations are the most common options.
From there, you can explore more high-efficiency units or variable-speed models that cost up to $15,000.
However, we can’t give you an exact cost without looking at your particular home. EVery furnace replacement begins with a load calculation, where we take into account your home’s square footage, layout, insulation, and other factors.
While 45,000 BTUs and two tons of cooling is the most common size for a 1,500 square foot house, we can’t say for sure without factoring in everything. To get a more accurate number for your Fox River Valley home, call (630) 504-8688 or click below for an appointment.
The cracked heat exchanger scam is when a dishonest HVAC company says the heat exchanger in your system is broken and the unit is unsafe. They shut down your heat and force you to buy a new one. You can avoid getting cheated by:
Cracked heat exchangers are a real problem, and yes, they usually mean you need a new system. But, you can’t visually see the damage. The company relies on carbon monoxide readings to find the problem.
That makes it easy for a dishonest company or fly-by-night operation to force you into a big-ticket purchase.
