The best way to tell if your furnace is a high-efficiency model or not is to take a look at the vent. If it is a metal vent, chances are it is NOT high efficiency. High-efficiency furnaces exhaust with minimal heat that they actually vent with PVC plastic pipe. All of the heat that used to exit your home via that old metal pipe now gets to stay in the house and keep you and your family warm and cozy. We actually are running a great furnace special right now as a matter of fact. You can have a new, state of the art, high-efficiency furnace completely installed for as low as $29.99 per month. The new furnace may save you more than that on your monthly gas bill. Call us or visit http://ghacwv.com/quote-request for a free in-home visit from one of our comfort consultants.
As a homeowner you should always make sure the filter is regularly changed. When you purchase a filter, the manufacturer’s instructions include a recommendation for how often it should be changed. Filters can become clogged much sooner than that recommendation depending on factors in the home, such as excessive dust, pet hair, or cigarette smoke. Keep an eye on the filter and change it when it appears to be clogged or dirty, even if it’s before the recommended date. And remember to always aim the arrow on your filter at the furnace.
