As our homes continue to age, many of us will begin to notice that certain parts of the home don’t work the way that they used to. For many people, a problem with the old furnace leads to the discovery of a problem with the chimney. Chimney repairs can be very costly, and many homeowners often have no idea why the furnace and the chimney have anything to do with one another in the first place. Don’t worry, you are not being scammed. If you have an old furnace, it most likely relies upon the chimney to vent out the noxious gases created by combustion in the system. If the chimney is improperly sized or falling apart, you may be better off upgrading your furnace rather than upgrading your chimney.
A New Way to Vent
This advice may sound a little backwards, but once you understand how new high efficiency furnaces operate, you will see why it is better to place your money in a new unit rather than in chimney repairs. New high efficiency furnaces do not vent out the chimney. These systems vent horizontally rather than vertically, and use a plastic piping system that vents directly from the furnace through the side of the home. These units are exponentially more efficient than the old unit you currently have, and as a result, they are also a much wiser investment.
A Smart Investment
Putting your hard earned money towards a new high efficiency furnace is a good idea even if you don’t have chimney problems. When installed professionally by Four Seasons, you will experience not only an upgrade in comfort but also an upgrade in savings. The improved efficiency of the combustion process within these high-tech units allows them to use much less fuel than the old chimney vent furnace you currently have in your basement.
Any new system you purchase these days will not use the chimney as a venting source, so you could either invest your money in a chimney that you may only use for a couple more years, or you can invest with Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning in a new high efficiency furnace that will last for years and years to come. It is your choice, let Four Seasons help you choose wisely.
