There are many home heating choices but forced air furnaces, mostly powered by natural gas, are the most common form of central heat. There are some good reasons for their popularity.
- They are easily connected to available natural gas system
- Vents and ductwork are shared with air conditioning systems
- Conveniently controlled with a single thermostat
- Heated air can warm the house up quickly
- Keeps temperature consistent when well maintained
- Can improve indoor air quality with high-efficiency filters & whole-house humidifiers
Masters Heating & Cooling can help you choose the right furnace for your home. Start with the AFUE (annual fuel use efficiency) rating. An AFUE of 80% means 20% of the heat produced is being wasted. Modern high-efficiency gas furnaces can have ratings up to 97.5% and our belief is to invest in the most efficient furnace you can afford. The efficiency will pay off in the long run.
This is a critical step to assure the furnace will heat your home in the most efficient way. Bigger is not always better, but a unit that’s too small may not provide adequate heat. Factors that need to be considered include square footage, type of insulation, number and quality of windows and doors. It takes a trained technician who knows the complicated formulas to determine which size is correct for your house.
Making the right choice
Whether it’s cars, appliances, or groceries there is an age old argument about the value of buying name brand versus off brand. Cost should be considered, but it shouldn’t be the most important factor. There is truth in the old saying that sometimes you really do get what you pay for. When it comes to a furnace you are talking about an investment to keep your family comfortable and safe.
