When evaluating home heater replacement costs, there are several factors that must be considered
Longwood, FL (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
The combination of record-breaking summer temperatures and plummeting winter weather has put such a strain on heating units and HVACs (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) that homeowners across the country are weighing their furnace repair and furnace replacement options before the next drastic shift hits.
“Selecting a home heater service or shopping for a new unit can be an intimidating process,” said Yil Acosta, Manager, Sears Home Services. “Whether you’re heating an efficiency apartment or a mansion, Sears has a wide range of selections and home furnace repair options to accommodate almost any need and budget.”
From heater service to boiler repair to gas furnace repair, Sears Home Services can service any band of heating system, regardless of where it was purchased. To keep your unit running at peak performance, routine maintenance visits twice a year can help prevent costly breakdowns.
Sears’ 10-point check-up for heating systems includes the following:
1. Inspection of the entire furnace for loose or worn parts, abnormal vibrations and proper venting
2. Inspection of the heat exchanger, if accessible
3. Inspection of the electrical circuit to furnace, including thermostat and thermostat wiring
4. Inspection and adjustment of the gas valve operation, if needed, as well as cleaning and adjust the pilot burner, if needed
5. Cleaning the air filter
6. Checking the ignition system
7. Cleaning and lubricating the blower motor, if needed
8. Checking the carbon monoxide emission level
9. Checking electrical/safety circuits for proper operation
10. Operating and adjusting the furnace for peak efficiency
If it the heater unit repair isn’t successful and it is determined that an entirely new system is warranted, Sears has one of the nation’s largest supplies of in-stock units to choose from.
“When evaluating home heater replacement costs, there are several factors that must be considered,” said Acosta. “Do you need a basic unit or one with a multi-zone feature to avoid heating the entire house all the time? Do you want to adjust the temperature remotely or with a thermostat? Do you require a particular type of unit that utilizes a cost-effective fuel source in your area? Do you have allergies and need a higher-end filtration system that improves the air quality?”
Regardless of your personal specifications, everyone should look for a unit with the Energy Star rating and only consider using a furnace replacement contractor who is fully licensed and backed by a guarantee.
