2 Things to Think about When Buying a New Furnace


Spring and summer is the perfect time to start thinking about replacing an old or malfunctioning furnace. The HVAC contractors will have more time to do the work, and you will have more flexibility in your scheduling for the installation. That will also give you plenty of time to figure out what furnace you are going to end up having installed. Several things should influence your decision as to which unit you should get installed at your house. 

1. Overall Climate

Before you make any decision about what kind of furnace you are going to get, you want to consider the overall climate of the area you live in. If you live in an area with a long and very cold winter, then make sure that the new furnace has a pretty good output. You may also want to think about how the heat is going to be delivered from the furnace to your house. In a very cold area, you might want to consider using something like forced water radiators or radiant heating units because they can tend to provide better, more even heating. Those two kinds of heating systems will also provide some kind of thermal mass heating, which will let the heat radiate out into the room even after the heater is off. 

2. Energy Star Rating

While you are choosing your furnace, you want to make sure that you are paying attention to the energy star rating on it. The higher the energy star rating is on any appliance, the more energy-efficient the unit is going to be. Since any appliance that changes the temperature of something, like a furnace, is going to use a lot of energy, you want to make sure that you get the best rating you possibly can. Doing that will start to save you money while you are using it, which is always a good thing. It can also help to offset the price of the purchase and installation of the new furnace.

If your current furnace just barely made it through the last winter, spring and summer are the perfect time to start looking for a replacement furnace. It's also a good time to look at the different kinds of furnaces there are available if you are building a new house so that you get the furnace that is perfect for your house.
