The average lifespan of a furnace is approximately 15 years, but with proper maintenance and upkeep, a heating system can last 20 years or more. However, there will come a time when it’s more cost effective to replace your furnace, instead of dealing with inefficiency and higher heating bills. At Enix Mechanical, we want to help Las Vegas homeowners find the best options for replacing their furnace, and will work with you every step of the way to choose a system that fits your home, your budget, and your heating demands.
Gas furnaces are mostly found in areas of the country that have cold, snowy winters, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t homes in Clark County that have them. These furnaces are often the most efficient for heating an average-sized house, and depending on the model you choose, can cost anywhere from $600 to $1400. If you currently have a gas furnace and want to replace it with a newer model, we’ll discuss the costs of the appliance and installation, and find a time that works for you to complete the removal and replacement of your old heating system.
Electric furnaces can be found in Vegas, as they are often more ideal for those parts of the country that don’t have high heating demands during the winter months. They are less efficient than gas furnaces and can use a high amount of electricity to heat a house, but if it’s not running all the time, it can be a more cost effective option. New electric furnace models can be a bit less expensive than gas options, ranging from $400 to $1000 for the appliance. Again, if you want to install a new electric heating system in your home, we’ll cover all the costs with you, from the appliance to the removal and installation.
Determining the Best Course of Action
Once you’ve decided it’s time to replace your furnace, the next thing is to decide on the best course of action in terms of cost and time. Does it make sense to buy a more expensive model and count on recouping that expense through lower heating bills, or should you opt for a less expensive model and look for your heating bills to be relatively the same? By looking at your current utility bills and finding out what it will cost to install and operate a new furnace for a year, you can get a good idea of where the savings will show. You can also calculate how long it will take for the new furnace to pay for itself in terms of energy savings, and if that’s a decade or more, you might want to choose a less expensive, albeit less efficient, option.
If you’re worried about your furnace making it through another winter, or you simply think it’s time to upgrade, contact Enix Mechanical today. We’ll work with you on choosing the best new furnace, and once you’ve picked one, we’ll get to work on installing it as soon as possible.
We look forward to helping you!
