8年左右的房子,感觉当时BUILDER的Furnace不是特别好。最近两三年冬天的GAS费用明显比5年前的高了不少。不知道是不是该城这次团购把Furnace换了?:confused:

有没有有过类似经验的童鞋指点一下?

除非能效特别低,或者常有故障,一般来说都是10年以上的才需要换。

现在换能拿一些rebate,但还是要算算一笔大帐,长远会不会省钱。

The four main reasons why you would need to replace a furnace are:
1) Extremely old and inefficient. If you move into a home that was built in the 1960s or even earlier, chances are that it has an old boiler system or furnace. This doesn't necessarily mean that you need a new furnace, but chances are that your system will need an overhaul to make it energy efficient for you.
2) High cost of fuel to run your furnace. Find out which is least expensive in your area: gas or electricity, and try to use the least expensive resource for your system.
3) Heating load. Heating load is the amount of energy required to maintain a steady 65-degree temperature indoors. To find out your heating load, you may want to consider contacting your utility company to perform an energy audit, which will help you figure out ways to make your home more energy efficient - and possibly save you from replacing the entire furnace or air conditioner. If you find that despite your efforts your furnace continues to work inefficiently, you probably need a new furnace.
4) Government Rebates. Ontario homeowners can get Government of Canada grants for a new furnace when they replace heating equipment.
1. $790 — gas furnace 94% AFUE or higher with a brushless DC motor (when installing a condensing furnace for the first time)
or $650 — gas furnace 94% AFUE or higher with a brushless DC motor
2. $250 — gas furnace By upgrading your furnace to a high-efficiency model that has an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) designed to decrease energy use, Ontario Power Authority allows a $250 rebate.


The HEATING & COOLING INCENTIVE runs from January 1, 2011 through to December 31, 2011.

是不是2 stage的?能program吗?
网上看下来,好像有些牌子的Furnace是会比较吵,有人说像火车的声音,你那个应该不至于吧。:D

火车倒是不至于,但是绝对和拖拉机有得一拼。因为冬天半夜醒来在二楼都能听到它在工作。

如果你接下来还要住个3-5年可能还可以考虑,因为截至到年终,现在换高能效的Furnace还能享受$1000左右的政府和能源公司的补贴(去年更多,听说今后有可能会取消),这样相当于自己出2,3千换个更省钱的炉子,可能3,4年就能省回来了,卖房子的时候也会好一点。

说实话,你现在这个属于可换可不换,关键看你是不是愿意一次性花这个钱,或者省一笔开销,但可能冬天多付一点暖气费,夏天多付一点电费(2 stage带modulator配合中央空调会更有效一些),最后再考虑一下你的经济情况,有没有这笔预算了。
