Evaluating Your Furnace Efficiency

Should I Buy a New Furnace?

Unless your furnace goes completely ka-put, it can be difficult to determine just the right time to consider buying a new furnace. On one hand, you don’t want to spend money buying a new furnace when your existing furnace could last a few more years. However, you also don’t want to sink money into an old furnace that might leave you stranded in the frigid throws of a harsh Kansas City winter.


Is It Time to Replace Your Inefficient Furnace, Air Conditioner, Plumbing or Indoor Air Quality Unit?

The only thing worse than a broken furnace, air conditioner, plumbing system or indoor quality air unit, is having to replace one unexpectedly. All these systems will give you clues along the way that it might be time to retire, but nothing says replacement like a huge disaster. The key is to avoid this by replacing your unit before it becomes a big issue. So when should you start looking at modern models?


The Ins and Outs of Changing Your Furnace Air Filter

Dirty furnace filters or super thick filters not only increase furnace wear and tear, but also fail to keep dust and allergens from circulating through your home. Changing filters every three months is the rule, however, during a typical Kansas City winter, filters may need changing more often since the furnace is running for longer periods of time.
