Reasons You Should Upgrade to the Lennox Merit Series ML180 Gas Furnace

Posted: 2023-04-18

Having a functional furnace is crucial for maintaining a comfortable living environment during harsh winter seasons. However, as furnaces age, they display signs of wear and tear that lead to a decline in performance. Using an old and inefficient furnace can result in increased fuel costs and frequent repairs, making it impractical to continue using it.

While investing in a new furnace may seem expensive, it is necessary for creating an energy-efficient and comfortable living space for your family. A new furnace uses less energy and delivers consistent heat throughout your home.

If your furnace is approaching 15 to 20 years of usage, it may be more practical to invest in a new furnace instead of continuing to use your old and inefficient unit. Older furnaces are often unable to distribute heated air evenly throughout the home, resulting in the need to adjust the thermostat frequently.

It is also important to monitor the flame produced by your furnace, as a mostly yellow or orange flame could indicate the production of carbon monoxide. This problem can be caused by an excess of gas or a lack of air, and it is crucial to consult a professional for a thorough inspection and necessary recommendations.
