Finally, spring is here, which means you can now turn off your furnace, right? It depends. If the temperatures are comfortably warm, then, yes, you may consider turning your unit off. However, early Minnesota springs often bring snowstorms, which will make you think twice. The worst thing about this season is not the cold; it’s the duration. Sometimes, winter lasts into what most regions consider spring months. This extended cold season necessitates the operation of your heating system. But what if your existing furnace is no longer up for the challenge?

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your preferred heating company in Fridley MN. We offer home comfort solutions all-year-round. If you’re thinking about getting a new furnace, we have an array of heating systems for your to choose from.

When is the best time to buy a furnace? 

While most people tend to upgrade their furnaces at the start of winter. It’s bad timing because, at that time, the cost of units usually goes up. On the other hand, HVAC companies typically get low numbers of customers during spring, hence, they tend to lower their prices.

Since homeowners are more concerned about their air conditioners, fewer people are thinking about upgrading their heating systems. As a result, the prices of air conditioners tend to go up while the costs of furnaces usually go down during this time of year.

With this in mind, scheduling an installation during spring is much easier since there will be fewer furnace-related emergency calls, therefore more HVAC professionals are available to install your unit.

Not only is the cost a good reason to buy a furnace during early spring, but the weather itself is also a huge upside. Due to the mild temperature, you as a homeowner are less likely to operate your heating system. Getting rid of your old furnace and installing your new one makes more sense during this time because you can survive a day or two without turning on your comfort system.

If you’re looking for a new furnace, consider this energy-efficient model from Lennox: the ML180 Gas Furnace.

Features of the Lennox Merit® Series ML180 Gas Furnace

Every component of the ML180 has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort knowing the furnace will deliver reliable performance, season after season.

From its heavy-gauge steel cabinet and aluminized steel heat exchanger to its sealed blower compartment, the ML180 is built to deliver reliable comfort, year after year.

An AFUE of 80% means 80 cents of every dollar spent on gas goes directly toward heating your home. That can mean the potential savings of hundreds of dollars per year when compared to an older furnace.

When the ML180 is paired with a Lennox® heat pump, it creates a system that can automatically alternate between electricity and gas to keep you warm. So you’re always using the most energy-efficient way to keep comfortable.

The ML180 has a Duralok Plus heat exchanger that is constructed from patented ArmorTuf steel that captures waste heat, and a stainless steel secondary heat exchanger that allows the unit to achieve industry-leading efficiency levels. This solid component exceeds industry requirements and extends the furnace’s life.

Its hot surface igniter controls furnace operation to ensure reliable, efficient performance.

With product registration, the ML180 may be eligible for a 10-year Limited Extended Warranty. Lennox also offers a 5-year Limited Warranty on covered parts and 20-Year Warranty on the Heat Exchanger.
