A quality home heating system is designed to last, but unfortunately—like all good things, they aren’t designed to last forever. Not only that, but depending on how old your home heater is, chances are there’s a more efficient model on the market today. Heating systems manufactured 15 or more years ago do not meet the same energy efficient standards that are required of models manufactured today. When it comes to deciding between heating repair or new furnace installation, it’s important that you consider the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (A.F.U.E.) of your system, which tells you how much fuel is being used. On average, a furnace today can range from 80% to 97% efficient. An older furnace could waste up to 45% of the heat it generates; in other words—the higher the number the less waste, which translates into cost savings for you.
