A Guide to Choosing a New Furnace for the Fall


When you’re in the market for a new heating system, you have to weed through a lot of options to find the system you want. For a lot of homeowners, the primary concern is the cost of a new furnace. Homeowners want a unit that fits into their budget but still performs as needed throughout the winter. The brand name of the unit is also probably high on your list of priorities, since customers tend to trust manufacturers who have been in the industry for many years. 

But there a couple of other factors that go into selecting a new unit that should be just as high on your list. Check out why it’s so important to take a look at the efficiency and size of your new air conditioning and heating unit.

Efficiency Rating

Initial cost should not be the only factor you look at this fall when you are selecting a new furnace. While a unit with a high efficiency rating might cost more a first, the overall savings will be worth it. A high-efficiency system can save you a lot of money each month. Check the AFUE of your new system to determine energy efficiency. The higher the percentage (closer to 100%), the more money you can save.


Another thing to remember is that if your heater is the wrong size for your home, it won’t actually perform up to its marked efficiency rating. The size of a furnace has a major impact on how well it performs. Your heating system must be the proper size of your home, no larger and no smaller, so that it can adequately heat up a room without using too much energy. Have a professional make the calculations to determine heating capacity for your new system.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.


When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
