Many people buy their first furnace without even realizing it. They buy a house with their furnace already installed. Your furnace needs to be serviced annually to make sure it is operating efficiently and safely. Furnaces get dirty and they need to be cleaned. Their motors need to be serviced and lubricated. It is important that furnaces be checked for carbon monoxide leakage. Carbon monoxide accumulation occurs when a blocked chimney, rusted heat exchanger or broken chimney flue prevents combustion gases from being exhausted from the home. To prevent CO poisoning, call Bill Smith Plumbing and Heating to inspect your furnace and insure proper venting of combustion gases each year. Bill Smith Plumbing and Heating has been servicing heating systems in Denver since 1956. We offer fair pricing. No gimmicks.
Some people buy their second furnace with the same amount of thought - they open their phone book or do a search on the internet and call the first Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC ) contractor on the list. Choosing a reputable HVAC contractor is the first step in determining your overall satisfaction and cost as choosing an appropriate furnace. Bill Smith Plumbing and Heating would like to earn your business and trust to service or replace your furnace. Please call or email us for a free quote.

Things to Think About When Buying a Furnace.
An oversized furnace, one whose capacity is too large, costs more to operate than a correctly sized furnace. This is because oversized furnaces cycle on and off too often and are more expensive to operate. A load calculation takes into account the size of your house, the insulation value of your windows, the amount of insulation in your walls and roof, and a host of other criteria to determine the appropriate furnace capacity. Bill Smith Plumbing and Heating will do a load calculation for your home before a furnace is recommended.
High efficiency furnaces typically cost more to install than low-efficiency furnaces. However, they tend to cost less to operate on a month to month basis as they use less fuel to generate the same amount of heat. The amount of time it takes for the ongoing efficiency savings to offset the higher up-front costs is known as the "payoff period". In many cases, once you take the payoff period into account, high-efficiency furnaces are cheaper than low-efficiency furnaces. However, that's not always the case. Your 90% efficient furnace will cost you more than your 80% efficient furnace if you move to a new house within the payoff period. And depending on which furnace you choose, the payoff period may be surprising long!
