There are many different qualities to look for in a new furnace. If you’re willing to put in the time and energy researching furnaces, you will find one that fits your needs. Read this article to learn about four tips that will help you in the process of selecting a new furnace.
Choose a Reputable Dealer
Before shopping for a furnace, shop around for a reputable HVAC company in the Atlanta area that can help you size a new furnace, choose the best furnace for your needs, and even install the furnace for you.
Compare Fuel Types
Furnaces can run off of electricity, natural gas, or oil. Check online, with local energy suppliers, or with a trustworthy HVAC company to see which energy source is the best option for your area. If you are considering a natural gas furnace but you don’t have a utility line, be sure to factor in the cost of installing one.
Look at Efficiency
Energy Star certified furnaces will save you a great deal of money in the long run, which may end up paying for the additional cost of a more efficient unit. Look at the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating to determine the energy efficiency of a furnace. A high AFUE rating indicates that most of fuel that is burned is converted into heat.
Check the MERV Rating
The Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating tells you how efficient the furnace’s filter is at trapping harmful particles in the air. A higher MERV rating of between on your next furnace will ensure cleaner air when heating season comes.
Consider Warranty Coverage
Different furnaces have different warranties. To give yourself peace of mind while safeguarding your investment, opt for a furnace with generous warranty coverage. Consider an extended warranty for a worry-free furnace purchase.
