Heating and Furnace
Heating System Installation
How long do heaters and furnaces last? It's a good question. There's no definitive answer, of course, but a good general rule of thumb might be 10-20 years, depending on preventive maintenance performed and usage history. Once it’s determined that repair is no longer the best option, you need to make sure you know all the options available and the pros and cons of each, and most importantly that your new furnace installation is carried out by certified professionals. All installers are not created equal!
Once your newheater is installed, you'll notice the difference immediately. Quieter operation, quicker heating, and lower heating bills are some of the benefits of your new energy-efficient furnace or heating system.
There are many options available to choose from and a lot of factors to consider—including Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage ratings, which let you know just how efficient a heating system is. What else should you know about the AFUE percentage rating?
- An AFUE is a thermal efficiency measure of combustion equipment like furnaces, boilers and water heaters
- The AFUE aims to represent the actual, season-long, average efficiency of your heating system
- It is a ration of useful energy output to energy input. For example, a 90% AFUE for a gas furnace means it outputs 90 BTUs of useful heating for every 100 BTUs of natural gas input
What to Expect When Working with ARS/Rescue Rooter
If the day has come to replace your heating system or furnace, the first thing we’ll do is send a trained ARS® Comfort Advisor to your home to discuss your current unit as well as your heating habits and concerns. Your Comfort Advisor will then take measurements of several areas of your home. Using multiple inputs like square footage, number of bedrooms, orientation/elevation/latitude of the home, and more, to calculate the load your new system will handle. With that information and highly-sophisticated calculations, we are able to determine the right system for you.
Your comfort advisor will present good, better, and best options from which you can choose, based on your budget and your family’s unique comfort needs. You can take as much time as you need.
