Your home is wasting money. Do you know how?

Your home is wasting money. Do you know how?

If you’re putting more cash into your existing heating system with regular repairs and rising energy bills, it’s likely time to upgrade your system.

An older, less efficient heating system is often the culprit behind high energy bills. By replacing an older furnace that is 60 percent efficient with one that is 98 percent efficient, homeowners can save approximately 40 percent on their energy bills and nearly $12,000 over the life of the system.

Is your system and home requiring excessive upkeep? 

An old system can affect more than just a family’s comfort level. Simple issues around the home can indicate it’s time to replace, such as hot and cold spots within the house, dust particles collecting below air ducts, and the unusual noises coming from the system. Checking the system itself for visible signs of rust and corrosion can also show that it is time for an upgrade.

Is my furnace or boiler showing signs that it’s on its last leg? 

If a furnace is more than 15 years old, replacing the aging system with a new, energy-efficient model will save money and provide additional comfort. ENERGY STAR-qualified furnaces, like the Lennox SLP98V furnace, are 15 percent more efficient than a conventional furnace. If you have a boiler, consider replacing it with an ENERGY STAR-qualified boiler that is 5 percent more efficient than a new, standard model.
