The ABC’s of Home Heating – Choosing a New Furnace
When it’s time to replace your old, inefficient furnace there are a few important things to consider.
1. Furnace Size
Choosing the right size furnace for your home is critical to ensuring your family’s comfort and the efficient operation of your heating system. If the furnace is too small, it will run more often and use more energy to heat the same space that a larger furnace will.
The EnergyStar rating system is designed to help consumers make smart choices about how much energy a gas furnace will use during the heating season. While more efficient systems typically cost more initially, they will often pay for themselves in just a few years by using less energy to heat your home.
Todays furnace’s are quieter than ever thanks to advanced engineering and features like two-stage fans, which allow the unit to distribute heat at lower fan speeds when less heat is needed.
Being without heat during a cold Chicago winter is a real hassle. By choosing a furnace with a good record of reliability you will reduce the odds of a furnace breakdown and ensure your investment will provide reliable heat for years to come.
