Furnace And Water Heater Replacement In Howell, New Jersey
Three of the most visible signs that indicate the need for a furnace replacement and a water heater replacement are poor performance, an increase in energy consumption, and age. The Lands knew that they had an old furnace and an old water heater. When their home felt cold, and their water heater wasn’t providing enough water to get through a shower, they knew it was time to call the professionals at Lawes Company.
One of our technicians examined their heating system and water heater. At the in-home consultation, he confirmed that these two pieces of equipment were old and needed a replacement. While a replacement was inevitable, our technician provided the Lands with a few options.
At Lawes Company, we believe it is better to provide our customers with all of their available options so that they can make an informed decision about what they want to do. The Lands decided that it was better for them to upgrade their natural gas furnace and replace their water heater in their Howell, NJ home.
Problem: The Lands household felt cold as the temperatures dropped. Their energy bills were gradually increasing even though they felt uncomfortable. Also, the Lands family could not shower because their water heater was unable to provide enough hot water.
Solution: Lawes Company performed a water heater replacement. We installed a Bradford White RG250T6N water heater. Additionally, we replaced their existing furnace with an American Standard natural gas Gold S9V2 variable speed furnace.
American Standard Gold S9V2 Variable Speed Furnaces
Many issues come with the use of an old and outdated heating system. There are performance problems. An old heater has to work much harder to try to keep a home comfortable. Sometimes, like in the case of the Lands household, it is unable to keep the house at a pleasant, warm temperature. Also, as the furnace ages, it becomes less efficient. Therefore, there is an increase in home heating costs. The Lands’ old furnace has an 80% AFUE rating originally. As you can imagine, as old as the heater was, its efficiency had dropped, and they were paying a lot to run the furnace.
Often, homeowners in this circumstance have to decide whether to repair or replace their old furnace. In most cases, it is better to replace the heater than it is to fix it. A homeowner can save money on energy bills, repair costs, and feel far more comfortable when it is cold out.
