Depend on Hoover Electric for Your Furnace Needs

As any  Troy, MI, resident knows, Michigan winters are challenging—to say the least. The lake-effect snow and brutally cold temperatures are not for the faint of heart. Because of this, having a furnace you can depend on all winter is a necessity. A damaged or broken heater poses more than a minor inconvenience. It can be a health risk to you and your family, but a replacement furnace can solve all your heating problems

To guarantee your home is safe and cozy year-round, you need an experienced team on your side. Our trained specialists have your back and are ready to handle all your furnace replacement needs.

A furnace generally costs a few thousand dollars, including equipment, materials, and labor plus any updates needed in your home. Electric furnaces typically cost less than natural gas, propane, or oil furnaces. And, the larger the size and capacity of the unit, the more it’ll cost to purchase and install. There are also cost considerations when switching from one type of furnace to another, while additional work such as installing ductwork, a new gas line, or upgrading your electrical panel will add significant costs to the project.

Installation time averages about four to 10 hours. The type, size, and complexity of the unit have a significant impact on how long it takes. Updates to your ducts, flu, gas connection, or electrical system will also add time to your furnace replacement project.

The gas consumption of a furnace is measured by its annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). A 15+-year-old furnace may not have more than a 70 AFUE. The minimum efficiency rating in the U.S. is now 80 AFUE, while an Energy Star-rated unit must be at least 90 AFUE. Some of the highest efficiency furnaces now available are up to 98 AFUE. A unit’s efficiency rating is listed on the cabinet or in the user manual.

Modern high-efficiency furnaces are designed to improve comfort and lower your carbon footprint. Look for models that have features such as:

  • Variable-speed motors that adapt incrementally based on demand.
  • Quiet operation due to sealed cabinets and near-silent gas burners.
  • Smart thermostats that learn your preferences and can be controlled remotely.

As furnaces age, it becomes more difficult to carry on with just routine maintenance. Significant repairs may be needed more frequently as the furnace reaches the end of its lifespan. If your furnace is not yet out of commission but requires costly repairs, it may be time to consider a heating replacement.
