    Des Moines Gas Furnace Installation

    Gas furnaces typically last around 15 to 20 years when properly maintained. If your furnace is at or near this age, replacing it can significantly improve your comfort and help lower your annual heating costs. This is especially true if you upgrade from a conventional furnace to a high-efficiency condensing one.

    Most conventional furnaces are only around 80% efficient, whereas condensing furnaces can be up to 98.5% efficient. The more efficient your furnace is, the more heat it will produce at one time. As such, the unit won’t ever need to run for as long and will use less energy.

    Whenever you do need to install a new furnace or replace your existing unit, it is vital that the new furnace is the correct size for your home. If you have an undersized or oversized unit, it will use more energy and won’t heat your home as effectively.

    This makes it essential that you hire an experienced company like Metro Heating & Cooling. We can accurately calculate what size furnace is best for your home.

    Repairing Gas Furnaces

    Maintenance is important for keeping gas furnaces functioning effectively. Nonetheless, most units will still require at least some repairs over the course of their life. When your furnace does need repairs, you shouldn’t put it off.

    Most problems will only get worse with time. Failing to get your furnace repaired may also result in the unit breaking down entirely and leaving you without heat. Should this happen during an extreme cold spell, your comfort will greatly suffer and there is a good chance your pipes may freeze. This is why we always recommend monitoring your furnace’s performance so that you can tell if the unit isn’t heating effectively.

    These are some issues to look for that indicate you need gas furnace repair services:
    • Furnace frequently runs for more than 30 minutes at a time
    • Furnace starts blowing cold air
    • Sudden increase in your monthly gas bill
    • Furnace turns on and then shuts off before it fully heats your home
    • Furnace runs louder than usual or makes unusual noises
