When purchasing a new furnace there are a lot of things to consider such as the size of your home, type and availability of fuel, and of course the cost of the unit. Our trained technicians will answer your questions and help you select the proper furnace to fit your needs and your budget.
By far the most efficient conventional furnace is gas, with AFUE
rating as high as 98.5%. The most common type of gas furnace is forced-air. A forced-air furnace works by pulling cool air through the cold air return, heating it and forcing it by means of a fan through the homes heat ducts. According to ConsumerReport.org
a newer natural gas furnace can save about $17 per $100 spent on fuel over an older model.
Oil furnace is another heating option. Oil furnaces have an AFUE
rating of about 86%. Some older oil furnaces are noisy and do not burn fuel efficiently which can lead to the strong odor of kerosene and high amounts of carbon emissions. Newer oil furnaces are quieter and cleaner burning which reduces carbon emissions. A major drawback to oil heating is the necessity of having a large, and potentially dangerous, fuel storage tank. Some insurance companies will not insure homes with a storage tank, even when empty. Our trained professionals can help you decide whether to fix or replace your existing unit.
