With multiple variations of a gas furnace, it can be confusing as to which one is right for your home. A furnace is an intricate system, with certain features that are designed to fit specific needs and wants.
When faced with a furnace repair or replacement, there are a number of things to consider, many homeowners ask such questions as to what brand? What efficiency? Two-stage gas or single stage? Should I have the modulating furnace? What size do I need?
Size and Features
We can make this simple for you. It is imperative to have a properly sized furnace. Size is going to depend on the size of your home and whether or not your ducting is sized and designed appropriately. The added features are designed to solve certain problems, meaning it is not necessary to buy the most expensive furnace in every home. Don’t get “sold” on equipment that is not necessary, as you will not experience the benefits they offer. We like to think of a furnace purchase as an investment, something that will pay you back in reduced energy bills and comfort.
Many people also focus on the brand name. This is important, but only to the extent of how well it is installed. The best product on the market can be installed poorly, resulting in a shorter lifespan than a lower quality furnace installed with skilled craftsmanship. We install Carrier equipment because we feel the customer is getting an excellent product installed by the best installers in North Idaho. In short, you are getting the most for your money.
When considering a new furnace, you will find that many furnaces have different efficiency ratings. An 80% efficient furnace means that for every dollar you spend heating your home, 80 cents is actually heating, 20 cents is going up the flue. This concept is applicable to all efficiency ratings; a 96% efficient furnace is using 96 cents of every dollar you spend to actually heat your home, saving you significant money over an 80% furnace.
