THE ANNUAL OLDEST FURNACE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE OLDEST FURNACE SUBMISSIONS.
STAY TUNED FOR THE WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT.
DO YOU HAVE THE OLDEST FURNACE IN THE AREA?
Every year, Carbon Valley Heating & Air Seeks the Oldest Furnace in Firestone, Frederick, Dacono, Erie and Surrounding Area*.
As your area Heating and Air experts, we have a responsibility to raise awareness of the potentially harmful side effects of having an old furnace in your home. Did you know that a large portion of accidents involving gas furnaces are caused by faulty parts, however, older furnaces that don’t comply with current standard safety codes are at an even higher risk? Possible consequences of an old or unmaintained furnace include house fires, as well as excess gas emissions in your air, which may cause you or your family to become sick.
Not to mention that the inefficiency of older furnaces hurts the environment, and your wallet; Depending on the age and efficiency rating of your furnace, a potentially large amount of savings can be realized monthly when you upgrade to a new furnace. That’s good for your wallet. And the substantial decrease in air pollution — 20 times less pollutants — is good for the environment.
Any furnace more than 10 years old is a ripe candidate for replacement. The average life expectancy of a gas furnace is 12 years depending on the brand and maintenance performed over the life of the unit. As mechanical equipment ages, its performance degrades and becomes less efficient.
