Why Should You Install a Gas Furnace?
If you want to install a heating system in your home, you basically have two options: heat pump installation or furnace installation. Both will provide reliable, energy-efficient heating, but furnaces might just have a slight edge:
Gas Furnaces Are Energy-Efficient
Gas furnaces are the most efficient type of furnace. While all gas furnaces on the market today are required to have AFUE ratings of 78 percent, most have much higher ratings than that and many are in the high 90 percent range!
Gas Furnaces Are Clean
Natural gas burns fairly clean, which means that not only are gas furnaces less costly to run than other types of furnaces, but they also require less space to exhaust their emissions – an 8 inch PVC pipe should be all you need!
If you want to install a gas furnace in Lenexa, KS, or Kansas City, MO, call Top Notch Heating & Cooling today! Our certified and experienced HVAC company can also provide services for all of your heating & cooling needs in the KC area, including furnace repair services in Kansas City.
Signs That You Need Furnace Replacement
Since furnace replacement can be a big investment, it’s important that you make sure you figure out whether you really need it or not. To figure out if you need furnace replacement in Kansas City, ask yourself the following questions:
Is your furnace more than 10 years old?
As we said, a furnace that is more than 10 years old may be barely hanging on. As your furnace gets older, not only does it start to lose efficiency but newer furnace models come out that are much more efficient – furnace replacement becomes a win-win!
Are your heating bills going up?
If your heating bills are increasing faster than fuel prices, this is a sure sign that something’s wrong with the furnace. To figure out if you should get furnace replacement, calculate how much you could save on your heating bills with a new one. If the savings justify the cost of a new furnace, call Top Notch for furnace replacement!
Do you need frequent furnace repair?
As furnaces get older they start to need more frequent repairs – this is especially true as they approach the last 2 or 3 years of their lives. If you find that you’re paying almost as much in repairs as you paid for the furnace in the first place, this is a good sign that you need Kansas City furnace replacement.
Is your home evenly heated?
If you set your thermostat at one temperature and certain rooms in your house are much hotter than that while others are much cooler, you could have two problems: one is that your ductwork is leaky and needs to be sealed. The other is that your furnace lacks the ability to effectively move heat around through your home.
What color is your burner flame?
If the flame on your burner is yellow instead of blue, you could have a serious problem – namely, that your furnace is creating carbon monoxide! Other signs of carbon monoxide creation are streaks of soot around the furnace, no upward draft in your chimney, rusting on pipes and jacks, excessive moisture on windows, walls, and other cold surfaces and water leaking from the base of your chimney, vent or flue pipe. Obviously carbon monoxide is extremely hazardous, and if your furnace is producing it you need to have it repaired or go for full-on furnace replacement immediately.
Is your furnace making strange noises?
Strange noises, such as banging, popping, rattling or squealing, are typically indicative of furnaces that have reached the end of their lifespan. In addition, if you can hear your blower fan running constantly, this is a sign that you might need a furnace replacement.

If you’re wondering whether or not you should replace your furnace, take into consideration:
- Its age. Furnaces tend to dip out by the time they’re 15, so if your furnace is more than 10 years old, it’s probably cost-effective to get a new one.
- Your heating costs. Are your heating costs through the roof. You’ll probably benefit from either a different sized furnace or a more energy-efficient model.
- Your needs. Are you moving? Downsizing? Or do you just need a replacement? Think about your needs and what your future needs might be.
- Its performance over the last two years. Was it on its last leg last year? Call us today.
