Bringing in a professional to inspect your system can prevent minor issues from becoming major problems, and major expenses. At HEAT & COOLING FACTOR, we have saved many home and business owners from expensive repairs down the road through simple maintenance. Annual maintenance is key when it comes to keeping a heating system operating optimally. Dirt and grime, are by far one of the major reasons so many furnaces malfunction when winter rolls around. This is a shame because hiring a professional to clean, and if necessary replace the filter, is a quick and an affordable service. Removing dirt from the filter also ensures that your furnace is working at its highest level of efficiency, and that means you won't be paying more than you need to on your monthly utility bills.
While it’s easy to do a search online and find out how to maintain your furnace, not every step should be taken by someone without years of professional experience. Keep in mind that while your furnace may look simple, it’s made up of electric parts and in some cases uses natural gas which can be extremely flammable. The furnace services at HEAT & COOLING FACTOR, LLC ensure that Newark residents have a guaranteed safe and professional option just a phone call away.

It is for this reason that we provide a detailed proposal for all customers that outlines exactly what our team will and won’t do. This proposal will include the manufacturer and model number of the new furnace, as well as any additional plumbing or electrical or venting work that may need to be completed before the task is fully up and running.

It is for that reason that you will be aware of all our costs in advance, not during or after we install your new furnace.

What Size Furnace Do I Need?
Chances are, if you live in a house built before the 1990s in Newark, your home is equipped with a large-sized furnace. A general rule of thumb is the older the furnace, the bigger it is. The reason that these oversized furnaces were installed so frequently in older homes is because it was believed that a bigger furnace was needed to ensure that all rooms in the home would receive the adequate amount of heat and warmth. And at the time, this was certainly the case. However, in recent years, smaller and higher efficiency furnaces can still emit the same amount of heat. It is for this reason that most of the furnaces we now install will be smaller and more efficient units.
Electric Furnace vs. Gas Furnace
Natural gas furnaces are the most commonly used heating systems in Newark. But when it comes to installing a new furnace in your home, many local homeowners have to consider that electric furnaces are a viable option as well. If you’re wondering what the pros and cons are for gas vs. electric, HEAT & COOLING FACTOR, LLC can help you out.
To start off, homeowners without natural gas lines are going to have a pretty easy time making their decision as electric is going to be their only option. You’ll find that an electric furnace functions at a higher efficiency than its gas counterpart, however the upfront and operating costs are quite different.
If you’re installing a new gas furnace in your home, you can expect to pay an average of $2,300 whereas electric is considerably lower at $1,200. But when it comes to running your new furnace, you’ll pay less for gas. The difference? Gas on average will set you back $14.02 per million BTUs whereas electric will cost you $34.32 per million BTUs.
There are more than one factor that goes into the choice of a new furnace, and by working with our certified team we’ll make sure to find the best heating solution for your home.
Leave it to the Professionals
When it comes to furnace and thermostat installation, it is vitally important that you leave it to the professionals you can trust. While it might seem like a good idea to try and do it yourself at the time, trust us, in the long-run, it will prove anything but. The simple fact of the matter is that furnaces and thermostats have become increasingly computerized in recent years require some very serious know-how to install correctly.
And, like with many other repairs if you pull out your tool kit and try to get to work on a quick fix only to have not-so-great results, you could be in big trouble. Furnaces do have the potential to be dangerous, whether they’re electric or gas, and should something go terribly wrong your insurance is not going to cover a job that was not done by a professional.
