I know that my gas gas furnace is reaching the end of its lifespan. The gas furnace is nearly twenty years outdated plus starting to show its age. Although I’ve kept up with annual, professional repair, the gas furnace is simply wearing out. Every winter, I’m faced with several small repairs plus the cost rapidly adds up. The gas furnace no longer puts out as much heated air, plus every winter, it’s necessary to raise the thermostat setting by several degrees. This causes the heating equipment to run nearly non stop, eating up a tremendous amount of energy plus costing more plus more to operate. The system only achieved an 89% AFUE rating when it was brand new, plus it’s really lost efficiency over the years. It is only a single phase model, which means that the heating system either runs at maximum capacity or completely shuts off. Because it blasts heat until reaching the thermostat setting then quits, it creates entirely unpleasant temperature swings. This type of operation also causes concerns with overly dry air in the house. I’ve observed that there’s a lot more dust floating around in the air plus settling on surfaces. I’m forced to dust, mop plus vacuum far more frequently, plus I blame the gas furnace. I worry about air quality plus safety risks. I’ve started researching brands plus models of gas heating systems available on the market, plus I’m shocked by how high-priced these systems are. However, newer models now achieve a 98% AFUE rating plus offer bendy speed technology, and these oil heating systems are able to adapt capacity somewhere between forty plus one hundred percent plus automatically adjust to provide only the necessary amount of heating. This allows the gas furnace to run at lower speeds for longer cycles, maximizing energy efficiency while maintaining a more even indoor temperature. Modern gas heating systems also include advanced air filtration plus safety features.
