"They are the best! They replaced our old furnace and AC for a very reasonable price and the house no longer has unevenly heated/cooled spots. Our energy bills are lower. The checkups are very helpful to make sure everything is working like it should. I’m really impressed with them and would definitely use them again."

FAQs on Furnace Replacement

How do I know what size furnace I need for my home?

The size of the furnace you need depends on various factors including the square footage of your home, the climate in your area, the insulation levels of your home, and the design and layout of your house. Professionals use a calculation called Manual J Load Calculation to determine the right size of furnace your home needs. This calculation takes into account all of these factors to determine how much heating your home requires to maintain a comfortable temperature. It's essential to get the sizing right; a furnace that is too small may not heat your home adequately, while a too-large furnace can lead to inefficiency and increased costs. Consult with a professional HVAC contractor to ensure the correct size is selected for your home.

How long does it typically take to install a new furnace?

The time it takes to install a new furnace can vary based on several factors including the complexity of the installation, the availability of the installers, and whether or not old equipment needs to be removed and disposed of. Generally speaking, a standard furnace installation might take anywhere from 4 to 10 hours. Complex installations that require additional ductwork, electrical work, or removal of an old furnace may take longer, potentially extending to 1-2 days. It's best to consult with your installation professional for a more accurate time estimate based on your specific situation.

How much does it typically cost to install a new furnace?

The cost of furnace installation can vary widely based on several factors, including the type of furnace you are installing, your location, the complexity of the installation, and the contractor you choose. On average, as of my last update in 2021, homeowners might expect to pay anywhere between $2,500 and $6,000 for a new furnace installation. High-efficiency models or those with advanced features may cost more, potentially up to $10,000 or more. It is advisable to get multiple quotes from licensed professionals in your area to get a clearer picture of the costs involved.

What are some signs that it's time to replace my heater/furnace rather than repair it?

Some common signs that you might need a new furnace rather than a repair include:

  1. Age of the furnace: Most furnaces last between 15 to 20 years. If yours is in this age range, it might be more cost-effective to replace rather than repair.
  2. Frequent repairs: If your furnace needs frequent repairs, it might be nearing the end of its life.
  3. Rising energy bills: If your energy bills are increasing without a clear reason, it might be because your furnace is losing efficiency.
  4. Inconsistent heating: If some rooms are colder than others, or the furnace can't maintain a consistent temperature, it might be time for a replacement.
  5. Unusual noises: Loud or strange noises coming from the furnace can be a sign that it's time for a new system.
  6. Poor indoor air quality: An old furnace might not filter the air as well, leading to dust, dander, or a stale smell in the house.

It's best to consult with a professional HVAC contractor who can assess the condition of your current system and make a recommendation based on your specific circumstances.

Signs You Need Furnace Replacement

A well-functioning furnace is essential for staying warm and cozy during the chilly Michigan winters. However, furnaces can wear out over time, become inefficient, and pose safety risks. Knowing the signs that indicate it’s time for a furnace replacement can help homeowners avoid unexpected breakdowns and ensure a comfortable living environment.

Age of the Furnace

The age of your furnace is a crucial factor in determining its efficiency and reliability. Most furnaces have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. If your furnace is approaching or has surpassed this age range, it’s time to consider a replacement. Older furnaces experience more frequent breakdowns, reduced efficiency, and increased energy consumption.

Frequent Repairs

Calling for furnace repairs more often than usual may indicate that your furnace is nearing the end of its serviceable life. Constant repairs can become financially burdensome, making a replacement a more cost-effective solution in the long run.

Rising Energy Bills

A sudden and unexplained increase in energy bills is often a sign of an inefficient furnace. As furnaces age, energy efficiency decreases, leading to higher energy consumption and bills. Upgrading to a new, energy-efficient furnace can significantly lower utility costs.

Types of Heating Systems We Offer

If you’re in the market for a new heating system, our heating company has many quality options for you:

  • Gas furnaces are the most popular central forced–air heating systems available today.
  • Electric furnaces are an option for those without access to natural gas. While they may cost a bit more to run, they typically cost less to install.
  • Heat pumps can heat and cool with a single electric system, designed much like an air conditioner with the ability to run in reverse. It saves money on heating over other electric systems because it moves heat rather than generating heat.
  • A dual–fuel system is a hybrid electric heat pump and gas furnace, giving you the best of both worlds in terms of efficiency and performance.
  • Ductless heating is available for those without access to a central air duct system. In fact, ductless mini splits may save you some money, since you won’t have to worry about air leaks from the ducts.

We have high–efficiency systems available in any style from some of the top brands. Give us a call and let our friendly team help you find the one that’s perfect for your home and budget!

Benefits Of Furnace Replacement And Installation

A properly functioning furnace is essential for surviving the cold winters in our area. When your existing furnace starts showing signs of wear and inefficiency, it’s time to consider a replacement. Furnace replacement can provide various benefits, such as:

Improved Energy Efficiency

One of the most significant advantages of furnace replacement is improved energy efficiency. Modern furnaces are designed to meet higher energy efficiency standards, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills. By upgrading to a new, energy-efficient furnace, homeowners can enjoy cost savings in the long run while reducing their carbon footprint.

Enhanced Performance and Reliability

A new furnace installation by GRmetro contractors ensures enhanced performance and reliability. Older furnaces may need help maintaining consistent heating, leading to uncomfortable temperature fluctuations. With a new furnace, homeowners can rely on steady and reliable heating, ensuring a cozy and comfortable living environment throughout the winter.

Factors To Consider Before Furnace Installation

Investing in a new furnace is a significant decision that can impact your home’s comfort and energy efficiency for years. Before proceeding with furnace installation you should carefully consider important factors to ensure you choose the right system that meets your needs and budget.

Proper Sizing and Load Calculation

Ensuring the furnace is the correct size for your home is crucial for efficient and effective heating. Our technicians at GRmetro Heating and Cooling Inc. will conduct a detailed load calculation to determine the appropriate furnace size based on your home’s square footage, insulation, and layout. Undersized furnaces may need help to heat the space adequately, while oversized furnaces can lead to short cycling and energy waste.

Energy Efficiency Ratings

Pay attention to the furnace’s energy efficiency ratings, such as the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficiently the furnace converts fuel to heat. Opting for a high-efficiency furnace can lead to long-term energy savings and reduced utility bills.
