There are several reasons to replace your current home cooling system with a newer model. Of course, if your system is not working or is frequently in need of repair, you should probably consider an upgrade rather than continuing to pay repair costs.
However, even if your system is working fine, it may still be worth making the transition to a newer model. That is because the cooling systems available now are so much more efficient than their predecessors that the monthly energy savings you will receive on your bill will quickly offset the cost of the installation. Even if your system is not that old, it is worth finding out how it compares to the energy efficient models on the market today.
The AFUE ratings on furnaces have to do with how efficient they are at turning fuel into heat. An 80% AFUE furnace converts 80% of the fuel it uses directly into heat, while a 90% AFUE furnace makes direct use of 90% of its fuel.
This means that the higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient the furnace is. A 90% AFUE furnace will help you save on heating costs as opposed to an 80% AFUE model because it wastes less fuel. Of course, the 90+% furnaces are often more expensive to purchase and install.
So in order to determine which type of furnace is right for you, you will have to figure out exactly where your usage falls. If you live in a warmer area without harsh winters, you probably will not save enough with the more energy efficient furnace to offset the higher purchase price. If you use your furnace a lot, however, the monthly energy savings can be well worth the larger initial investment.
Most manufacturers recommend having your home heating system serviced once a year. These visits allow technicians to clean and inspect all parts of the system and perform any necessary repairs. They keep systems functioning much more efficiently and can help to extend the life of the entire system.
