Things to consider when deciding to install a new furnace:
- Are you having to call for repairs often?
- Do you regularly find that your home is uncomfortably cold? Or maybe too warm?
- Do you hear your system running constantly?
- Are your utility bills high?
- Are you replacing an existing system or is the furnace going in a brand new space?
- What type of fuel do you have now? Are you considering converting your home from oil to gas to save money and be more eco-friendly?
Perhaps it is time to upgrade to something more efficient and reliable.
Average Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE)
The AFUE rating measures the heating efficiency of both gas and oil furnaces. An efficient furnace heats your home while burning as little fuel as possible, saving energy and saving you money on heating bills.
Expressed as a percentage, the AFUE is the percentage of fuel energy used to heat your home. For example, a unit with an AFUE of 90 percent means that 90 percent of the unit’s fuel produces heat for your home and 10 percent goes to waste. The more efficient your furnace operates, the higher its AFUE rating will be.
Check the AFUE of the furnace in your home: Low-efficiency units have AFUE values between 56 and 70 percent. You could save money by replacing your old unit with a high-efficiency unit that will cost less to run and likely be more reliable than your old furnace.

What type of maintenance should I expect to perform on my furnace?
All HVAC systems should be serviced once per year in order to maintain the performance, efficiency, and safety of the unit. All heating systems, whether it be central air systems or ductless, will need to be cleaned, inspected and tested every season. Various elements of the unit and its counterparts should be professionally checked and filters should be changed to ensure clean safe indoor air quality. This is very important in order to maintain the validity of warranties. It will also extend the life of your entire HVAC system. This preventative tune-up is best done by becoming one of our annual maintenance plan customers, so we can be sure to remind you to schedule at the beginning of each season.
