Will a new furnace work differently than my old one?

Yes, but better. Because of furnace technology, modern technologies provide a more efficient and even heating that older model. This change can impact not only how you receive the heat, but also how much you pay for it.

Advanced furnaces move more air over the exchanger than older ones which increases the airflow and producing a more comfortable living environment. The heat may not be as warm coming out of the register but will be delivered more efficiently for more comfort and less cost.

Also, the newer technology allows the furnace to integrate with the more advanced air conditioners to boost your total air comfort experience.


How often should I change the standard one-inch throw-away filter on my furnace?

You should change these standard furnace filters about every six to eight weeks. Change it too soon, and you lose efficiency, change it too late, and you may risk a clogged air flow.


Why Furnace Filters?

You should change your filter according to the recommendation of your manufacturer to attain pure air in your home. Also, a clogged air filter can harm your furnace and make it run less efficient.

My experience with Viva was really nice. I've been looking to buy Nest thermostat, but sales rep came to my house and I found out that I can get one for free if I would change my tank. He was really respectful and knowledgeable. I enjoy my Nest and new water tank.
