Why Install a New Furnace?

Aside from complete, non-repairable system breakdown, there are other reasons why it may be time to schedule a furnace installation.

  • Is your current furnace 15-20 years old? A furnace installed more than 15 years ago is nearing the end of its life span. A new furnace will be more efficient and easier to operate, and it will provide more reliable comfort.
  • Have your energy bills been spiking for no obvious reason? An older furnace will only get less efficient as it ages.
  • Is your furnace repair estimate $500 or more? That’s a lot! In most cases, you are better off replacing your furnace with a new model when the repair estimate is this high.

If you’re not sure if your furnace should be repaired or replaced, call Moore Mechanical at 925-307-6479.

What Kind of Furnace Should You Install?

Carrier’s gas furnaces provide even warmth, energy efficiency, and superior home comfort. And they are available in a range of models with various available features to meet the needs and budget of any household.

What’s the Difference Between Mid-Efficiency and High-Efficiency Furnaces?

Any brand-new furnace is going to be more energy efficient than one installed even 5-10 years ago. But there is a range of efficiency levels among furnaces. “Mid-efficiency” furnaces have AFUE ratings of 80 to 89%. “High-efficiency” furnaces’ AFUE ratings span from 90 to 97%. These high-efficiency models will save you more money on energy costs over the long term and may qualify you to take advantage of local, state, and sometimes even federal utility rebates.

Furnace Installation FAQs

At Moore Mechanical, we offer Carrier furnace installation, including electric furnace installation and gas furnace installation, to homeowners in the East Bay area. If you’re planning for furnace installation, you might have some questions. Here are some answers from our experienced team.

What are the benefits of furnace installation?

Installing a new furnace will help you enjoy more reliable heating. It will also cut your energy bills because new furnaces are more efficient than older models. We can help with both gas furnace installation and electric furnace installation in the East Bay area.

How much room do I need around my furnace?

You should have at least 30 inches of space on all sides of your furnace. This will give HVAC technicians access, should the system need to be repaired at a later date. It also ensures enough air flow and ventilation around the unit to protect you from fire.

What does AFUE stand for?

If you are having a gas furnace installed, you will notice AFUE as a rating on the furnaces. This is a measure of how well the furnace turns gas into heat, and it stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. An 80 AFUE furnace will convert 80 cents of every dollar of fuel into heat. The higher the AFUE, the more efficient the furnace is.

Do I need a gas or electric furnace?

If you have gas service to your home, a gas furnace is the most efficient option. Electric furnaces cost more to run, but they are the right solution for homes that do not have a gas line.

How large of a furnace do I need?

Your furnace needs to be sized for your home. If it’s too large, it will cost more in fuel than you need to spend. If it’s too small, you will struggle to keep your home warm and the furnace will work too hard to keep up with your demand. Our HVAC technicians can help you determine the proper size for your furnace.

Tips to Maintain Your Heater

Furnace Filters
The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your heater is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal air flow and can reduce your systems efficiency significantly. With normal air flow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coils heat absorbing capacity. Keeping the filter clean can also lower your heaters energy consumption by 5%–15%. We recommend that you clean or replace your air conditioning systems filter(s) every month or two during the peak season. Filters may need more frequent attention if the heater is in constant use, subjected to dusty conditions or you have pets in the house.

Heat Exchanger
Check the physical integrity of the heat exchanger. Leaky boiler heat exchangers leak water and are easy to spot. Furnace heat exchangers mix combustion gases with house air when they leak—an important safety reason to have them inspected.
