Why You Should Buy the Lennox ML195 Gas Furnace

Posted: 2021-03-16

Just because you have a working furnace doesn’t mean you are completely comfortable and safe. If you have an old, inefficient furnace, you probably are aware of some the ideas we’re going to talk about in this blog.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted heating company in Lino Lakes MN. We are an authorized distributor and installer of Lennox furnaces, which are regarded as some of the quietest and most energy-efficient on the market.

Overview

One of the things that old furnaces are known for is that they are significantly more expensive to operate than newer, more energy-efficient units. Outdated furnaces cannot match the efficiency levels of the latest models, obviously. The minimum AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating today is set at 80 percent. What this means is that, having a furnace lower than 80 percent AFUE no longer meets the government’s guidelines for energy efficiency. This is a big deal, not only in terms of the furnace's operational costs but also in regard to your home’s carbon footprint. Given the condition of the environment these days, we should all think about minimizing our impact on nature, don’t you think?

Your safety is another area of concern when running a dated heating system. As it delivers heated air throughout your home, it can also carry with it dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide without you even knowing it. Since carbon monoxide is without odor, it can be challenging to identify if your ductwork is leaking. If you or your family has been experiencing flu-like symptoms, this could mean that there is a carbon monoxide discharge in your home.

On the subject of carbon monoxide leak, an old furnace is also a fire hazard. A properly working furnace burner should produce a solid blue flame. But if it has a yellow color or is flickering, this could indicate a problem that cannot be ignored. A carbon monoxide leak does not only put you at risk of inhaling this deadly gas, but it can also start a fire. Therefore, it’s best to call a heating professional as soon as you detect such a leak in your home.

Also, the moving parts of older furnaces are possibly worn and can fail at any moment, which can cost you a lot of money on repairs. But keep in mind that the older the furnace is, the harder it is to find replacement parts.
