Colder weather will hit Bensalem before you know it. Soon it will be time to break out the shovels, snow blowers, and plows. Before this weather hits, however, it is a good idea to make sure your furnace is prepared to face the cold weather and snow.

If your furnace is over ten years old or had multiple issues last season, you should start looking into a replacement. The HVAC market may have changed quite a bit since you last bought a furnace. You may not know what to look for or what features to pay attention to. If this is your case, Modern Air Solutions in Bensalem, PA is here to help!

Price

HVAC systems are one of the largest home investments you will make. Some of the best models can get expensive. Yet at the same time, if you simply go for the cheapest offer, you can end up needing more repairs and spend more money anyway.

It is a good idea to figure out a budget ahead of time and save up for a new furnace in smaller increments. This can make the process less stressful. Modern Air Solutions can also help you find the best furnace within your budget so you can get the most out of your money.

Size

The size of the furnace can affect both your system’s efficiency and your family’s comfort. Having a furnace that is too big or too small can negatively affect both of these factors. Be sure to have Modern Air Solutions perform a load calculation to help you figure out what size furnace you need.

Efficiency

Efficiency is one of the main aspects you want to look for when buying a furnace. High efficiency comes with a variety of benefits including:

  • Using less energy.
  • Lower utility bills.
  • Comfort for your family.
  • Fewer repairs.
  • Your furnace will last longer.

There are many factors that affect efficiency. This includes the system, the filter, maintenance, cleanliness, and more. Talk to a Modern Air Solutions technician to help maximize the efficiency of your HVAC system.

Home Zoning System

If you want even more comfort and efficiency out of your furnace, consider having Modern Air Solutions install a home zoning system. A home zoning system divides your home into sections using a series of dampers in your air ducts. This allows you to direct the warm air exactly where you want it to go. With a home zoning system, you won’t have to turn up your thermostat just to make sure the warm air reaches all of the corners of your Bensalem home.

Variable Speed Blowers

Yet another way to add comfort to your home is with a variable speed blower. A variable speed blower changes the speed at which the conditioned air is distributed in your home. This helps keep your home at a more even temperate. It can also help your system operate more quietly.

Warranty

Many companies offer warranties on their furnaces. Be sure to find out what the warranties cover and how long the warranty lasts. You will also want to look at the terms and how the warranty gets voided. This way you can make sure you are covered if you run into issues.

Installation

Finally, you will want to make sure that your furnace is properly installed by an HVAC contractor you can trust. If you simply go with the cheapest offer, they may rush and not do thorough work. Then you can end up with lowered efficiency or a need for repairs. Modern Air Solutions can help you make sure your system is installed correctly so it will work efficiently.
