The Older Your Current Furnace, the More You’ll Save with This Upgrade

Of all the home service needs that homeowners wait on addressing, replacing an old furnace makes the top of the list. As long as it’s not completely broken down and provides some heat, it’s fine, right? You’ve been able to rely on that thing since before social media was invented—so no reason to make a switch! Or is there?

Little do most folks know…as much as 40% of that old furnace’s energy could be wasted. That means your furnace is costing you extra money.

We have some great news! Barron Heating is once again offering a Pay Back Program where you can earn up to $1,000 in combined savings with the purchase of a new high efficiency furnace. The older your furnace, the more you’ll save. Today’s high efficiency furnaces are rated 95% or higher, turning almost all the energy they generate into heat for your home. Talk about a true return on investment!

Not convinced you need an upgrade? Keep reading to learn why replacing your furnace may be the most practical and economical solution.  

Your Furnace is 15+ Years Old

If you take great care of your furnace—scheduling maintenance once a year, changing its air filter every one to three months, getting repairs done ASAP when needed—then it can run for decades. The problem is, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will run well. Operating a heating system past its prime only allows wear and tear to set in and efficiency to drop.

You Constantly Need Furnace Repairs

If this is the case, you already know your equipment is getting pretty costly to keep up. A newer furnace should only need a component replacement or minor repair every two to three years. If you find yourself calling for repairs every two to three months, instead, then it’s time to consider whether or not you’re making a wise financial investment.

You Hear Strange Noises Coming from the Equipment

In some cases, particularly with newer furnaces, a strange sound may just indicate that you need a small repair. For instance, if you hear a scraping or grinding sound, it might be that the lubrication has worn down on the blower fan’s motor bearings. This is a simple fix for our technicians!

What’s concerning, however, is when an aging furnace makes sudden or loud noises that you’ve never heard before. This can include squealing, screeching, heavy rattling, or even banging. If you’ve had repairs done in the past and you’re still hearing these noises, it’s time to make the switch!

When you can get paid back for upgrading with Barron, and upgrade to a furnace that’s going to cost you a lot less to operate month-to-month, there’s no reason not to upgrade. Our team of Home Performance Experts is happy to answer any questions you may have about your current furnace or about replacing with a higher efficiency system. But don’t wait too long! Barron Heating’s Pay Back Program is going on now through January 31, 2021.

*There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus..
