When Should You Replace Your Gas Furnace?
At the 10-year mark with the same furnace, you will want to keep a close eye on your monthly utility bills to see if they are going up. You also want to track the number of repairs throughout the year.
Heating and cooling costs typically account for about 40 percent of your energy expenses, so if you see these expenses going up, your furnace is probably not running as efficiently and costing more to heat your entire Meridian home.
Is your home well insulated? Do you feel a draft every time you walk by a window or door? It always makes sense to take a whole-house approach to your HVAC needs. When you do need to replace your furnace, address these other issues to keep it running at peak efficiency.
We install, replace, repair, and maintain all makes and models of heating and cooling equipment. With more than five decades of experience and thousands of satisfied clients, you can be confident that you made the right choice with Western.
Gas Furnace Ratings
The AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating on your furnace indicates how much energy it converts. An energy-efficient furnace with an AFUE rating of 95 means it can convert 95 percent of the energy it consumes into heat.
The higher the AFUE rating, the more money you save on monthly utility bills. Energy-efficient furnaces are more environmentally friendly since they emit a lesser amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. If you want to reduce your Eagle home’s carbon footprint, this is a great place to start!
Keep in mind that maintaining your ductwork and sealing the windows and doors in your Boise home are key factors in energy-efficiency savings. If your home is poorly insulated, your furnace will struggle.
How Much Money Can a New Furnace Save You?
Our AFUE energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit's AFUE value and compare it to a newer, more efficient system. You can even customize it to better match your home's system for a more accurate calculation.
Gas Furnace Installation or Replacement
At Western Heating & Air Conditioning, our team of knowledgeable professionals can install your HVAC system from the ground up with a new construction project or integrate new HVAC equipment with your existing parts. We never take shortcuts—once a piece of equipment is in place, it is likely to stay there for years to come.
We understand that every home is unique. A furnace too small for your home’s square footage and layout will always struggle to keep up with the demand, while an oversized furnace will short cycle and waste energy.
Choosing a properly sized unit for your Treasure Valley home saves you a lot of money over the long run. New HVAC equipment immediately adds more value to your home. It is a smart investment that pays off in savings and comfort.

“I have a 100 year old house and my previous furnace was in the small crawl space. We removed the old furnace and ducts, put a new furnace in a utility closet in the house, put in all new ducts, added AC and air returns in the ceiling (instead of one in the floor). Paul Farmer was the project manager who walked me through the process. He always made me feel like we were just having a conversation where he was helping me figure out what was best for me, my home and future. When the big day arrived, Travis P, Travis W, Jackson, Ian, Braden and Jarod were awesome. It was apparent they knew what they were doing and worked well together. They were so respectful of my home and so attentive to details. I actually enjoyed having them around for nearly two days, they just took all the quirks of this old house in stride and made it look easy. This is a big investment and I am confident that Western and Carrier will keep my home comfortable with one of the highest efficiency ratings possible. They provided more value for the price than other estimates and everything just went so smoothly. I highly recommend Western and their awesome team.”
