Whether you’ve moved into a new house or it is time for a new furnace in your existing house, buying a new furnace can be a daunting task. The Efficiency team has some suggestions to aid in the buying process.
What Should I Look for?
Shop Around – Looking at many stores for the best price is always important. More important is finding an affordable unit, not the cheapest! When it comes to a new furnace it is worthwhile to shell out a little extra cash for a better unit. This will save you money down the road in repairs, we promise you this.
It’s a great idea to take AFUE into account – The AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating is an indicator of the amount of energy the furnace will be using. In other words, it’s a thermal efficiency measure of combustion equipment like furnaces, boilers or of course water heaters. We always aim at 92% or 95% 96% and 97% of efficiency. This can result in savings of thousands of dollars over its lifetime.
Shopping by brand – You may have been loyal to the same furnace brand since your great-granddad, and there is nothing wrong with that. The thing we ask of you is to check the quality of the brand today. Some brands aren’t as high quality as they once were in their heyday.
Time to DIY!
Before you go online and Youtube how to install this new furnace and cause a huge mess, consider calling a professional. Professional furnace installation is something that we are trained for. The average do-it-yourself handyman just isn’t trained to see the problems that a professional does. This can spell disaster and can end up an extremely costly project.
