|If you’ve had a dreary winter in Newport MN because your furnace all but gave up, the change from winter to springtime may be your chance to start over with a new furnace. In answering questions in a section at This Old House magazine, Richard Trethewey said that there’s much to think about in having a new furnace installed.
A look at the weather readings for the past month in Newport MN, revealed some interesting tidbits that can test the patience of people leery of the cold. The mercury was teetering above zero degrees during the Christmas holidays and fluctuated the first two weeks of January 2015, hitting the high 20s nine times – and your furnace may have been severely tested on those coldest days. If you feel that your furnace fought its last battle during the winter of 2014-2015, experts at heating in Newport MN like the team at Rumpca Services welcome the chance to ensure you get a new furnace that will best fit your home’s needs.

The Tough Go Shopping
Shopping for a new home furnace has a number of variables to account for – and power source is one of the defining factors. Some HVAC experts say advances in heating technology enabled traditional oil-based furnaces to branch out into electric or natural gas-powered units; most contractors will be familiar with all categories. The average service life for many furnaces is 15 years at best.
In looking up the furnace most appropriate for your house, Trethewey says an energy audit must be conducted on-site to gauge the amount of BTU’s (British thermal units) that will heat your entire Newport MN home. Take note of any weather stripping recommendations to better contain the heating load.

Lean and Mean
Fuel efficiency is the name of the game when replacing furnaces. Trethewey recommends checking your current furnace’s annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) grade, which is the percentage of fuel consumed as heating energy, and then talking with your contractor about the numbers. They can then show you a list of furnaces with the best AFUE numbers for your home, and provide other options for Newport MN furnace repair. The techs at Rumpca Services are some of the best in the Eastern Twin Cities.
Some names are thrown around when it comes to quality furnace manufacturers, but for a contractor like Rumpca Services, Dave Lennox stands out among the best. The company produces a line of furnaces that are compliant with the Department of Energy’s ENERGYSTAR® regulations and lead in many categories like sound and efficiencies.
Some people may say that the New Year is the chance to start over, but when it comes to home heating, the more accurate time would be spring. This is your chance to part ways with something good and start over with something even better.
