3 Things to Consider When Buying a New Furnace

At Phoenix Air Conditioning, LLC, we understand how difficult it can be to purchase a new furnace. You might be unsure of where to begin or which type of heating system is suitable for your home. You might also be worried about getting ripped off with a furnace that claims to be the best bargain in the market.

No matter what the case might be, the following are three things to consider when purchasing a new furnace:

  • Efficiency matters. A furnace that is highly efficient can mean manageable energy bills for several years. You can check for efficiency by looking at the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. The closer the rating is to 100%, the less it will cost to run.
  • Look for variable speed settings. Dual-state and variable speed furnaces are considerably more efficient and better at maintaining comfortable temperatures throughout the entire home. Instead of shutting off and then turning on at one consistent speed, this type of furnace readjusts as needed to provide more or less heat.
  • The furnace size affects the lifespan. The right type of furnace for your home depends on the size of your home. If the heating capacity of your unit is not sufficient enough, it will do a terrible job of providing heat in your home. If the heating system is too large, then it may short cycle, which results in the unit turning on and off at a frequent pace and the components wearing down much faster.
