You can’t escape it: Wisconsin winters take a huge toll on your heating system as well as spiking your energy costs. Operating an old, worn out, inefficient furnace results in significantly higher heating costs, wasted fuel, and a higher rate of furnace pollution.
There are several factors to consider in selecting a new furnace.
Start with the condition of your home
Where are the areas where there’s possible heat loss? Drafts? Has a remodeling project altered the overall square footage, placing extra demand on heating equipment? Likewise, an over-sized furnace costs substantially more to operate because it typically cycles on and off more, putting more wear on its components and increasing operating costs.
