How to Choose a New Furnace
When you’re adding a new furnace or upgrading your current model, consider the following:
- Size: Be sure the furnace you choose is compatible with the size of your home. It will need to provide heating for every room. Our Howell’s Heating & Air experts always factor this into the equation and can make a recommendation on the best furnace for your particular home—give us a call!
- Type: There are several types of furnaces: single-stage, two-stage, and variable speed. A single-stage could work for a smaller home, but a two-stage can operate in two different modes, resulting in greater efficiency. The most efficient is a variable speed furnace—it operates at a lower speed but does so for a longer cycle to reduce operating costs.
- Efficiency: If you want a more energy-efficient furnace, check the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. Higher AFUE ratings indicate the furnace can convert more fuel into energy, resulting in the most efficiency.
