Buying a New Furnace? Here's What to Know

Damien McCusker

A furnace is a necessity for keeping your home comfortable during the colder parts of the year — or just on cold mornings. Furnaces are an expensive but needed part of every home, and knowing when to replace your furnace and what to look for in a new one is very important.

 

Things to Keep in Mind When Buying a Furnace

There are several factors to consider when buying a new furnace and these four tips can help you choose the best unit for your home

Know When to Replace Your Existing Furnace

An older furnace can be a drain on your finances and your personal comfort. Newer furnaces are more efficient and produce more heat with a lower overall cost. If your old furnace isn’t getting the job done, it's time to go furnace shopping. 

The Furnace Brand

When furnace shopping, there are several well-known and well-established brands to choose from. More expensive models tend to offer more features, higher efficiency, and a longer, more useful life span. That being said, price isn't everything, and focusing on the features, size, and type of furnace you need will make for a better purchase. 

Energy Efficient Furnace

A furnace’s energy efficiency is an important factor to take into account when furnace shopping. A lower-efficiency furnace may be cheaper, but it will require more fuel to create the same amount of heat as a more efficient unit. 

Does Furnace Size Matter?

The size of your furnace is a consideration when furnace shopping. If your furnace is too large for your home, it will be inefficient and turn on and off more often, causing increased wear on parts and higher energy use. If your furnace is too small, it won’t be able to effectively heat your home. Professional assistance can help make sure the furnace you're thinking of buying is a proper fit.
