How to Buy a Furnace
Posted On: December 4, 2020

The furnace plays an important role in keeping your home nice and toasty during the cruel winter. That being said, how do you know which kind of furnace is the best for you? If you’re trying to pin down your options, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’ll be going over everything you need to know before buying the furnace of your dreams.


Furnace Types
Gas furnaces are the most popular kind of furnace and they come in three forms.


A single-stage gas furnace features a valve that opens and closes. The gas-only flows at a high rate. These are the best for milder climates. The flow of gas in two-stage gas units can be adjusted lower or higher for better efficiency. Your home’s thermostat communicates with the furnace to help regulate temperature. Modulating gas furnaces can regulate heat the most accurately of all the gas furnaces. These are ideal for colder climates.


Furnaces can also come in electric and oil.


Electric furnaces may not be as economical as gas furnaces, but they remain popular. They heat air through electric coils and disturbs the warm air in your home. Oil furnaces are best for those who don’t have access to other types of fuels.


Fuel Source 
Gas is the most popular source of fuel in the furnace world because it’s cheap and readily available. Gas furnaces are usually cheaper to buy and install and are less messy than oil furnaces. If a gas supply isn’t available in your area, oil would be your next best choice. Electric furnaces are the cheapest to buy and install but are not very effective at heating larger homes.


Size
Installing a properly sized furnace is the key to heating your home. If you buy a model that’s too small, it probably won’t heat your entire house. A furnace that’s too big will waste money on fuel by creating heat you don’t need. Many factors determine the best size, including square footage, ceiling height, and insulation. You should ask an HVAC contractor for an in-house examination to determine the best-sized furnace for your home.
