What To Consider When Buying A New Gas Furnace

The best option when it comes to improving comfort and lowering your monthly energy bills is to upgrade your old heating and cooling system. Our HVAC experts know that the process can be a bit intimidating since they’re often an investment. Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding on buying a new gas furnace for your home.


Furnace efficiency is measured by a percentage call the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The higher the AFUE %, the more efficient the unit is. A 96% AFUE gas furnace will convert 96% of the fuel (gas) you put into it into useful heating power.


Different sized homes are going to require different sized equipment. Your HVAC technician will be able to correctly identify what size your home will need based on the square footage of your home, how much insulation your home has, the number of rooms and windows inside of your house, and other factors that you may not realize you need to consider when buying a new gas furnace.

Your HVAC unit should be your primary focus and is your home’s first line of defense against indoor pollutants. Following a good system, you should ask your HVAC installer about additions that can enhance what your HVAC can do, such as whole-home humidifiers and air cleaners.


Talk to your HVAC technician about the details of your warranty. Find out who registers your gas furnace for warranty coverage, you or the HVAC installer. Many HVAC equipment manufacturers have their own warranties. Companies like A-Abel offer package deals that vary in cost and length of warranty.
