Consider These Worthwhile Add-Ons For Your Furnace Installation
Posted on April 1, 2014
If you want to get the most value for your new furnace, you should consider taking advantage of related add-ons. Add-ons for your furnace installation will not only improve the your home comfort, they’ll enhance the efficiency and safety of your HVAC system.
Chimney Liners — In order for modern furnaces to function safely and at peak efficiency, they need a properly sized flue. Check with an HVAC professional to see if a chimney liner would improve the function of your new furnace.
Air Filters — If you are looking to improve your indoor air quality and the efficiency of your furnace, upgrading your air filters is a good idea. Upgrading to pleated air filters or an advanced filtration system is recommended.
Programmable Thermostat — One of the most effective ways to minimize energy waste is to install a programmable thermostat. They let you control when your HVAC system runs even when you’re not home. If you want even more control and efficiency improvements you can upgrade to a WiFi thermostat.
Zoning System — Install a zoning system, which will allow you to heat different parts of your home at different levels. This saves you from wasting heat in areas that you rarely spend time in.
Whole-House Humidifier — Your new furnace may have a big impact on humidity in your home. If the humidity levels are too low, you could be at risk of getting sick and being uncomfortable. A whole-house humidifier can be installed to use your existing plumbing and HVAC system.
It may not be practical or cost-efficient to install all of these add-ons in your home, which is why it’s always a good idea to check with an HVAC consultant to go through your options.
