How to Choose the Right Furnace

Having a home heating system that’s efficient plays a crucial role in keeping your Southern Ohio home safe, warm, and cozy throughout the wintertime. But how do you decide which type of furnace is best suited for your home? If you’re looking to replace your old or outdated furnace, this guide can help guide you in the process. Before making a decision, consider the following five factors:

Fuel source

Because it’s readily available and usually the least expensive, natural gas is the most popular fuel source. Moreover, gas furnaces are usually cheaper to purchase and install, and they’re a lot less messy than oil furnaces. However, if gas supply is not available in your area, the next best choice is oil. Overall, electric furnaces are the cheapest to buy and install. However they don’t heat large homes very well and will cost the most to operate in electric bills.

Furnace type

  • Modulating Gas Furnaces: Of all the gas furnaces, this type regulates heat the most precisely. It’s ideal for colder climates to regulate room temperatures evenly and efficiently.
  • Single-Stage Gas Furnaces: A standard single-stage furnace features a gas valve that opens and closes. The gas flows at a single rate, which is high. Single-stage gas furnaces operate at about 80 percent AFUE and are best for milder climates.
  • Two-Stage Gas Furnaces: For optimal efficiency, two-stage gas furnaces enable the gas to flow high or low. To regulate the temperature, the unit’s thermostat communicates with the furnace.
  • Electric Furnaces: Although they aren’t as economical as gas furnaces, electric furnaces are still popular options. They heat air by moving it over electric coils and distributing the warmed air throughout the home.
  • Oil Furnaces: Oil furnaces are ideal for homeowners who don’t have access to other types of fuels.

Energy efficiency

So that consumers can compare efficiency ratings, the Federal Trade Commission requires all new furnaces display AFUE ratings. The AFUE represents the annual heat output of the furnace compared to the total annual energy consumed. An AFUE of 80 percent means that 80 percent of the energy heats the home while the other 20 percent escapes. AFUE does not include any heat lost through the duct system. 

Although having a furnace with a high rating is important, the cost of the fuel source should also be taken into consideration as it can take away from the furnace’s efficiency. The most efficient furnace is an electric one. An electric furnace barely loses any energy. The AFUE rating for an electric furnace is 95 to 100%. However, in spite of the high-efficiency level, electricity is more expensive. This means electric furnaces the most expensive to run.

Unit Size

Installing a furnace that’s properly sized is the essential to heating your home. If the home heating unit is too small, it won’t heat your entire home. A furnace that is too big, on the other hand, will waste money on fuel by generating heat you don’t need. A variety of factors determine the best size, including things like insulation, square footage, ceiling height and the number of windows. To guarantee we put the right size unit in a home, we perform an in-house evaluation that includes all these factors and more.

“Should I Repair or Replace my Furnace?”

When home heating equipment breaks down, fixing it can be quite expensive. And, if you find yourself having to fix it more and more, you may wonder whether it’s better to repair or replace your furnace. Below we list seven essential questions and answers that will help you decide whether to repair or replace your furnace.

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

"How Old Is My Furnace?"

Furnaces usually last around 15 years at least, and often even longer if they’re properly serviced and maintained over the years by a professional. Nevertheless, as a furnace gets older, shelling out for expensive repairs makes less and less sense.

"What Condition is the Furnace In?"

Investing in repair parts and labor on a system that’s been running beautifully is usually well worth the money. However, if the furnace is loud, rusty, sooty, blowing cold air, and running up your heating bill, it might be time to say goodbye, especially if there are any safety issues.

"What’s the Projected Cost Of Repairs?"

The age and condition of your furnace will help you determine how much you should spend for repairs. For example, spending a few hundred dollars on a furnace that’s middle-aged isn’t unreasonable. However, if the repair estimate comes to more than a thousand, your money is probably much better spent investing in a new model.
