Is it ok to install a different brand of air conditioner and furnace?
Yes – most brands of HVAC equipment will work properly together provided the coils and blowers are the proper size. At worst, you’ll see a slight drop in efficiency or capacity.
What should I do to maintain my furnace?
Your furnace or heat pump will perform more efficiently and last longer if you keep it well maintained. This includes things like:
- Inspecting filters once a month and changing them if they are dirty
- Making sure the supply and return vents in your home are not obstructed by things like furniture, curtains, boxes, toys, etc.
- Checking your chimney and venting systems once a year for secure fittings, leaks, corrosion, or damage
- Keeping the area around furnace clean and clutter free for at least three to four feet on all sides
- Allowing adequate combustion air for your furnace, making sure it has enough space to breathe
When should I replace my furnace?
Furnaces tend to last around 15 – 20 years. After that, you may start to notice some indicators that tell you when to replace your system. These indicators include:
- Frequent pilot light outages
- Delayed ignition
- Yellow flame or wavering flame
- Excessive soot or corrosion
- Too much or too little heat
- The smell of sulfur or burnt eggs
How do I choose the right size furnace?
Your furnace needs to be sized to accommodate your home’s unique heating needs. In order to do this, a professional needs to measure your home and calculate its heating and cooling load. This calculation is based on your home’s square footage, windows, walls, ceiling, floor plan, appliances, insulation, exterior, and more.). A professional will also consider your duct configuration, number of home occupants, and your lifestyle before recommending the ideal furnace size for your home.
