How to choose a furnace?

Choosing a furnace can be a daunting process and there are many things that you need to consider. But with so many factors it can be tricky to know where to start. We believe that these are the most important factors to consider for new furnace buyers.

The best thing you can do as a future furnace purchaser is to be a part of the process! We are here to help you fix comfort levels. One of the biggest misconceptions during an estimation is that people lead our estimators down to the furnace and leave. We say don’t! We want you to be as involved throughout the process as possible.

Furnaces are complex, no one furnace is alike. With many features, it’s important to know that furnaces offer different amounts of comfort. What are you wanting out of your furnace? What are your goals with the new furnace? We work with you to meet all your comfort needs.

Another important factor to think about is how your home is currently being heated?

Questions to consider are:

  • Do you need space heaters to keep areas warm?
  • Are you constantly changing the thermostat?
  • Are there cold spots in your house?
  • Are you looking for more warmth in your home?
  • Do you have a small space?
  • Are you looking for a more quiet furnace?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, don’t be afraid to tell your estimator! After all, that’s what we are here for and our goal is to offer the perfect solution personalized to you!

Now we are down to the basics, with every brand, these are the need to know:

  1. Single-stage: your furnace has two settings, high and off
  2. Two-stage: furnace runs for a cycle on low fire (60% capacity) and goes into the high fire (100%) when needed to satisfy the thermostat.
  3. Modulating furnaces: These use the least amount of gas and electricity to keep the house warm and comfortable, less cold spots in the house as it tries to adjust everything to get rid of cold spots and can modulate heat.

And that’s about it! Although choosing a furnace can be daunting, always remember to stay a part of the process, we’re here to help you.
