How to Choose the Right Furnace for Your Home

April 12, 2024

Do you know which furnace is best for your home? Choosing the right furnace is essential to ensuring years of worry-free, comfortable heating and cooling in your home. Here are the keys to success.

Furnace Size

Furnaces come in different sizes depending on how many BTUs they produce, and how many tons of air volume they move. They also have different cabinet sizes and ducting to consider, depending on how much space you have to work with in your mechanical room.

Factors to Consider for Furnace Size:

  • Square footage of your home
  • Number of heating vents in your home
  • Location of heating vents in relation to the furnace
  • Heat loss from windows and outside walls
  • Duct Sizing

An experienced furnace installer will factor all of these into their heating design and furnace selection for your home.

Keep it Compatible

If you are hoping to install air conditioning at any point in the future, deciding on the correct size of furnace is key to making sure that your future AC or heat pump unit will be compatible. A little planning in advance can prevent you from having to swap out the furnace unnecessarily in the future when you finally go ahead with getting air conditioning. Speak to your furnace installation specialist about potential future plans to install cooling systems, and they will help you pick a compatible furnace.

Choose Trusted Installation Professionals

The brand of furnace you select is important, but even more important with today’s high-efficiency furnaces is the quality of the installation itself. Make sure you hire a fully licensed contractor that is highly experienced at installing the heating equipment you are looking for. Do your research by not just looking at how many good reviews they have, but how many bad reviews they have online. Remember that good reviews can be bought by less-than-reputable companies, but if a company has a bunch of bad reviews, that is a definite red flag.
