HVAC New Year’s Resolutions

Are you a member of the “Good Intentions New Year’s Resolution Club”? Well, actually that’s not a real thing – but maybe you make New Year’s resolutions but never follow through with them past January 2nd? Many people do that – so you are not alone! Maybe you need to make your resolutions more simple so they are more attainable in 2020? Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning can help your HVAC New Year’s resolutions become a reality. Here are a few of the top New Year’s resolutions – HVAC version:

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #1:

Get (Your Furnace) In Tip-Top Shape

Getting in shape, losing weight or exercising more are some of the top Canadian New Year’s resolutions. Over 54% of Canadians want to improve their physical well-being, so you are not alone if this is your goal for 2020. However, when it comes to your home heating and cooling system, this resolution can apply as well. If your furnace is out of shape, huffing and puffing, or old and sluggish it is definitely time for a furnace clean & check! This annual check-up can get your furnace back in tip-top condition and keep it running smoothly throughout the new year. Or maybe you need a new furnace? Out with the old, in with the new! Replacing your furnace with a new Napoleon high-efficiency gas furnace could be the best decision you make for your home all year. Contact us today for a FREE QUOTE to see how this dream can become a reality in the New Year for your home.

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #2:

Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

If everyone committed to this resolution, our world would thank us at the end of the year. This may seem a bit daunting at first, but there are simple ways in which you can reduce your personal environmental footprint. By implementing a few small changes you can make a BIG difference. How about requesting paperless billing from your gas or electric company? Maybe recycle more – or commit to buying products in compostable or recyclable packaging? What about getting a more energy efficient furnace or air-conditioner for your home? A new high-efficiency heating or cooling unit could save you hundreds of dollars on your utility bills each month! Did you know that Napoleon’s EnerSave ECM motor reduces electrical consumption by up to 80% over conventional blower motors? Now, that’s a change that our environment will thank us for!

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #3:

Save More Money On Your Heating Bill

If your furnace or heating system is more than 10 years old, it probably has an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 55-70%. Due to this lower AFUE, your heating unit is not very efficient and is costing you way more money each month. As the furnace ages, it need to run longer to maintain the same amount of heat which causes your gas and electric bills to increase steadily, year after year. With regular maintenance by a certified HVAC technician, you can help increase the life of your home heating system. If your furnace is nearing the end of its life, we can help you choose the right new high-efficiency furnace with an AFUE of 95-97%…and that can save you a LOT of money in 2020.

If you’re thinking about a new furnace for 2020, give us a call. Or if your furnace needs a clean & check, we can do that as well.
