Selecting the Right Furnace
I had 4 different companies give me estimates for new air conditioner and furnace. Affordable heating and cooling was recommended by a friend. We ended up going with them and were very, very happy with every aspect. From phone conversations, to setting up the estimate, to installation, to follow up, etc, it was all done very well.
When you’re trying to decide on a residential furnace, one of the toughest parts of the decision can be understanding the information and statistics you’ll read about each system. For instance, all furnaces have what’s known as an AFUE rating. This figure refers to the overall energy efficiency of the furnace and is typically in the range of 80–90+%.
Of course, the higher the number, the more energy efficient the furnace and that sounds pretty good. Who doesn’t want to save on their energy bills? However, when it comes to selecting a furnace, there are other factors to consider besides the AFUE rating that can impact the type of furnace that is the best choice for you financially.
The reason… because furnaces with a rating of 90% or higher typically cost a good deal more than their 80% counterparts. An 80% AFUE still means the furnace is pretty energy efficient. In fact, you’d have to use your furnace quite a bit if you want to make up for the higher purchase price of the more energy efficient 90+% AFUE furnace.
