Question: Will my new furnace work like the old one I had?


A new furnace will not operate the same way as an older one. As with electronics and cell phones changing, furnace systems have also changed in recent years. These changes will affect how your system operates and what you notice about them.

Furnaces have become more efficient with high efficient systems and you can see a number of them the marketplace. Consumers, government agencies and manufacturers all see higher efficiency as a way to conserve our natural resources while reducing consumer energy costs. Furnaces are now designed with high efficiency in mind and it is tough to find and purchase furnaces that were produced more than 15 years ago due to more government regulations.

To achieve higher efficiencies, new gas furnaces must move more air over the heat exchanger than older furnaces so that as much heat as possible can be sent throughout the house. The air that comes out of your furnace registers may not seem as warm as the air from your old furnace, but it will heat your house just as well. Better airflow can improve the heat in your home by reducing air temperature differences from the ceiling to the floor.
