Firestone, CO, October 02, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Carbon Valley Heating and Air is looking for the oldest furnace in the area and will give its owner a new furnace free as part of an effort to show homeowners how much energy savings is possible from a heating system upgrade.
“We feel this contest is a good way to draw attention to the potentially large amount of savings by upgrading an old furnace to new,” said Josh Robertson, Chief Technical Officer of Carbon Valley Heating and Air. “There are some very old heating systems in this area and a lot of energy and money is wasted. Plus, higher efficiency furnaces decrease pollution substantially – about 20 times less pollutants.”
According to Robertson, any furnace more than 10 years old is a ripe candidate for replacement, especially if the efficiency was 80% efficient or less when new. He also pointed out that, depending on the brand and how often regular maintenance is performed, the average life expectancy of a gas furnace is 12 years. As mechanical equipment ages, its performance degrades and becomes less efficient.
All homeowners are encouraged to enter the Oldest Furnace Contest. There will be prizes for the top three runners-up! Carbon Valley Heating and Air will provide a free carbon monoxide detector to each home with the three next oldest furnaces. Homeowners can complete the online entry form found below. Entries will be verified for age and function and the winner will be selected by November 16, 2015.
