It's a scenario many homeowners fear. It is deep into fall and the weather has turned colder. You finally decide to flip on the heat to make it through those chilly mornings. Maybe you hear a strange noise, or maybe you just realize 20 minutes later that you are still freezing. Regardless, your furnace isn't working. So, you bundle up in your woolen socks, sweatpants, and jacket and call your Green Leaf Repairman. Many times they are able to fix it, but this time it isn't the case, your furnace is at the end of its lifespan and it's time for a new one.
Furnaces are notoriously one of the most expensive appliances that need to be replaced, which can seem daunting. Also, because not having heat when it is cold outside is not a fun situation to be in, you'll want to choose a new furnace and get it installed as quickly as possible. It's a big decision, but one you need to make in a short amount of time. So, how can you know what kind of furnace is best for you?
Here are 3 main things to consider when deciding on a furnace to install:
1. Gas, Electric, or Oil? Each has their pros and cons, and will largely depend on what you previously used in your home. In some cases, conversions can be done and change the fuel source, but this may end up costing more. You may want to consider an electric-powered heat pump as this is often the most economical solution in regards to the fuel source of your furnace.
2. Pricing. Your budget will play into this, but be sure to factor in potential tax credits and future energy savings from energy-efficient furnaces.
3. Size for your home. Like a new pair of shoes, the right fit is important. A furnace that is too small for your home will not heat efficiently, while with one that is too big will leave you overpaying for a larger furnace than you need.
